Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-8

Impressive graphics take center stage in these titles. Sharp, hyper-realistic, larger-than-life drawings of one or more representative species are either set against a plain colored background or within a natural setting. Each title succinctly describes basic anatomy; physical and behavioral characteristics common to all the featured animals; some distinctive characteristics of dozens of species; diets; hunting and/or feeding habits; reproduction and life cycles; and relationship to humans. Both titles conclude with profiles of particular species-10 in Insects and 7 in Sharks . The dung beetle, housefly, bolas spider, and great white, bull, and cookie-cutter sharks are among the creatures included. Good companions to Laurence Mound's Insect (spiders are not included) and Miranda MacQuitty's Shark (both DK, 2004), which are broader "Eyewitness" introductions.-Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library
