Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Miguel, a young Filipino boy, is on a field trip in the jungle. The noises and sights frighten the boy from the city, especially the sight of the huge Phillipine eagle or "haribon." A close encounter with the eagle finally cures Miguel of his fear. Muted watercolors depict the eagle and its surroundings with accuracy. An epilogue provides further information about attempts to save the Phillipine eagle -there are thought to be fewer than 250 alive today.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-As in her Whale (1993), Tiger (1992), and Elephant (1993, all Candlewick), Allen tells the story of a child's encounter with a wild animal, weaving together fiction and an environmental message. On a class trip in a Philippine jungle, Miguel is frightened by a huge eagle that is scouting for prey. The boy's teacher offers information about it and kindly advice to rid him of his fear, but it is not until the bird inadvertently saves him from a poisonous cobra that he is comfortable with the eagle's presence. Both text and watercolor illustrations convey the lush, green growth of the jungle and the quiet power of the massive raptor. A concluding fact sheet briefly summarizes efforts being made to save the Philippine eagle. A lovely read-aloud to encourage interest in endangered species.-Kathleen McCabe, East Meadow Public Library, NY
