Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Any reader of fairy tales and fables knows that the fox is considered sly, cunning and intelligent. This comprehensive description of foxes in their natural habitats describes their evolution, the distribution of foxes across the planet, and the role of social structure in their continuing survival. Macdonald, a professor at Cornell University, has written a number of wildlife books. His articulate and informed text combines with outstanding pictures from top wildlife photographers to provide a highly informational book. The book is very well organized, with a useful table of contents that guides the reader to information such as different species of foxes, their characteristics, sociality, or interaction with humans. Two large distribution maps in the back of the book orient the reader to the evolution of the fox and its distribution pattern. An index, bibliography and glossary round out the helpful organization tools. This book is a must-purchase for school libraries that cater to the ever-existing assignment of animal reports. Everything a reader wants to know about foxes is included in this package. The book is part of the acclaimed "Worldlife Library" series 2000, Voyageur Press, $16.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Betsy Barnett
KLIATT
These handsome nature books feature gorgeous color photos, along with succinct texts that describe the animals and their habits and habitats. In Foxes, for example, the author, the Director of the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford University, discusses the origins of the fox, foxes of the world, characteristics, the search for food, sociability, and foxes and humans, and he provides distribution maps—along with mention of how he and his children have hand reared fox cubs. Frogs looks at toads briefly as well, along with examining a frog's life cycle, frog lore, types of frogs, and more. Minke Whales, by two biology professors, examines their food and feeding, evolution and regional differences, and migration, among other topics, while Salmon discusses the types of salmon, their life cycle, migration and homing, fisheries, and the predators and dangers with which they must contend. Lovely to browse through, with enough facts and figures to support school reports, these are suitable for all libraries looking to update their nature collections.
