Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kris Sauer
Written in clear, simplistic language that targets early readers, this nonfiction book on Easter Island introduces readers to one of the world's most enduring mysteries: why some 900 statues of giant people are scattered about this remote Pacific island. Built by the ancient Rapa Nui civilization, the statues are built from stone called tuff and are collectively known as moai. Some of the statues have bodies, while others do not. Most have very long heads and enormous noses. Their arms hang straight at their sides, and the hands of most have long, thin fingers. They look like they are standing, but they do not have any legs. Today, thousands of tourists visit the island seeking to break the mystery of why these statues exist in the first place. Part of the six-title "Places of Old" series, this book incorporates lush full-color photographs to enhance the text. The book includes a very brief glossary and bibliography. Finally, although an index is included, none of the pages are numbered, making it difficult at best to actually locate an index citation within the book itself. Reviewer: Kris Sauer
