Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“[T]he level of information is high and exciting. . . . [I]t is a delightful presentation of facts and a springboard for further research.” —NSTA Recommends

“Aiming for maximum browser appeal, each lively spread packs facts into a format that suggests a briefing file on a most-wanted villain . . . This highenergy, engaging title offers a wealth of surprising facts. . . . [a] great choice for young reluctant readers.” —Booklist

“The book is well organized and informative and would be useful for short reports. The artwork and the photography are excellent and fully complement the text.” —School Library Journal

“Meet 16 of Africa's most ferocious animal hunters and killers through a format geared to look like intelligence gathering by the reader.” —Library Media Connection

“With its illustrations, charts, text and imaginative fold-outs it should appeal to a wide range of age groups. . . . This book is as close to a website as you'll get on paper. . . . Paging through this book, young readers can find just what interests them in an instant. The photographs showing the animals in action in their environments are excellent. There are plenty of animal books out there, but Savage Safari succeeds in being memorable.” —San Francisco Book Review
