Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book focuses on only one scavenger—the brown hyena. It tells the story of one female hyena in southern Africa, who gives birth to a female cub; and it follows the life of both hyenas as they learn to hunt for food and care for younger hyenas. Readers learn how the female hunts for food, staying away from the rest of the communal group for several days if food is scarce. They will learn about the predators of brown hyenas and how the young escape these predators by digging a small hole in the ground. Readers will also learn about the digestive system of this scavenger who can devour up to 6 pounds of food a day. Readers will discover that life for a hyena can be hard, as it is for many animals in the wild. Large photographs cover almost every other page in this informative book. Since this book is about a scavenger, pictures portray the brown hyena eating dead animals. In the back matter, the author asks questions, challenging readers to understand what they have read. Resources for books, videos, and websites are included. 2005, Lerner Publications Company, Ages 8 to 12.
