Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Pat Metz
Concise notations and excellent photographs enliven the text of this book which presents the history of ferrets along with information about their physical characteristics, their behavior and the care necessary if one has them as pets. A good resource book to find out more about ferrets and a must read before considering a ferret as a pet.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6Good-quality, full-color photographs accompany a clear, readable text in this comprehensive book on ferrets. Information about keeping the animals as pets dominates the text but there are also chapters on related creatures in the wild including the endangered black-footed ferret. Report writers and prospective ferret owners alike will enjoy this title. The Silversteins' Black-Footed Ferret (Millbrook, 1995) covers only the endangered species and is written for an older audience. Johnson's look at this popular animal will prove to be a useful addition.Ellen M. Riordan, Enoch Pratt Free Library, Baltimore, MD
Kirkus Reviews
These non-rodent relatives of the weasel, badger, and skunk, often the source of controversy over their appropriateness as house pets, are gaining in popularity, next in line to cats and dogs. Many young pet owners may be interested in finding out how to choose, feed, live with, and care for a ferret; while most of this entry in the Carolrhoda Nature Watch series is a manual for pet owners devoted to the caring and keep of domesticated ferrets, Johnson (Tomatoes, Potatoes, Corn, and Beans, p. 301, etc.) also considers its background and its historical uses as a working animal for hunting and pest control. The presentation of information is straightforward and easy to follow; full-color photographs throughout depict ferrets at work and play, including hunting for rabbits in the rubble of WW II Germany or engaging in backyard fun, such as a game of hide-and-seek or catch. A section on the black-footed ferret, a wild cousin, is also included.
