Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Finding a jackal won't be hard after you read this book from the "Wild Dog" series. The first page of text quickly explains where jackals live in the world and establishes the fact the different species of the dogs are "choosy" about where they live. The black-backed, golden, and side-striped jackals are also distinguished due to their communication habits and physical appearances. Graphic pictures present the jackal as a scavenger and meat eater who is most successful with hunting when paired with another jackal. Short sentences, big print, and only one topic per page keep the reader moving. True-to-life photos offer a close look at the creature. The interesting concept of jackal "helpers" is defined as the process whereby medium sized pups help protect the new jackal babies. Resource pages compliment the text of this series book. The authors have aptly explained how jackals add to the overall life cycle of our world. 2002, Gareth Stevens Publishing,

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Topical spreads containing one page of text facing a full-color photo examine a different aspect of these creatures' lives. A bold heading indicates the page's subject (e.g., "Jackal Juniors" discusses how jackals raise their young). Most of the basic facts are included in the short texts, but the information is not in-depth. Difficult terms are in bold and defined in the glossary, which makes these books suitable for independent readers. The eye-catching illustrations increase the overall appeal. Annotated lists of relevant Web sites that offer search suggestions and the addresses of a few zoos and museums are included. The small size of these books and the large number of photos make them reader-friendly and they should find a ready audience among browsers and children writing brief reports. Serviceable additions.-Arwen Marshall, formerly at New York Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
