Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bruce Adelson
Jack and Ashley Landon, their parents Steve and Olivia, plus Bridger, a young guest from Texas, travel to the Everglades for some environmental research. While Steve and Olivia are working with the National Park Service on a preservation project, the kids are free to explore the Everglades. This title, one of a four-book environmentally oriented series, combines information about the Everglades ecosystem with a suspenseful yarn about unknown toxic polluters. The authors have created very believable, well-textured characters. But perhaps most striking is the attention to detail which they have taken with descriptions of the Everglades, its manatees and pelicans, as well as the heat and humidity of a typical South Florida summer. The authors' impressive research is clearly apparent throughout their book. As young readers read this absorbing tale, they should be able to hear the mosquitoes buzzing about them and feel the spray hitting their faces as the kids slice through the Everglades' waters aboard the Pescedillo. This excellent book, with its admirable presentation of such environmental issues as preserving endangered species and the fragile nature of the Everglades, should be at the top of libraries' purchase lists.
