Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Of the many mysteries that have remained unsolved, those involving an area known as the Bermuda Triangle are among the most intriguing. Donkin provides factual recaps of some of the better known disappearances including the five navy aircraft of Flight 19, the strange experience of the Tug Good News and the Mary Celeste, a floating ghost ship. In this junior UFO book, the facts are presented and questions posed as to what may have been the cause. The text is captivating and kids who enjoy a taste of sci-fi or mystery will find this book to their liking. Paintings or photographs are found on every page. There is a note to parents on the opening page about the series and the importance of reading. A Level 3 book in the "Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Readers" series. 2000, DK Publishing, and $3.95. Ages 4 to 6. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This study of the so-called "Triangle of Death" may leave emergent readers with more questions than answers. There are suggestions that the happenings in the triangle are UFOs making their presence felt. The mythical Atlantis is also mentioned as a possible reason for all the strange occurrences. The easily understood language sometimes takes on a ghostly tone. Illustrations (some quite spooky), photographs, sidebars, and maps enhance the accessibility. Many examples are given about the strangeness of the area, with only one double-page spread given over to natural explanations. A more scientific understanding of the area can be found in Chris Oxlade's The Mystery of the Bermuda Triangle (Heinemann Library, 1999), aimed at a slightly older crowd. Donkin covers a topic of great interest to many young researchers. It's too bad it's so slanted toward the supernatural.-Anne Chapman Callag- han, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
