K-Gr 4--This brief informational story details the life cycle of one of North America's most endangered species (the author's note claims that they are the rarest, but the Florida panther may now have that dubious honor). Phantom is a lively black-footed ferret, a hairless infant when readers first meet her and a mother nursing her own kits a year later when they leave her. Bash's muted watercolors give a true feel for the prairie habitat through the seasons and supplement the textual information about these animals. This is a fine start for young nature lovers, and though not many children will have seen a black-footed ferret, the domestic ferret's popularity as a pet will make this animal a familiar subject. Those who want pet information can turn to Lilo Hess's Time for Ferrets (Atheneum, 1987; o.p.).--Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL
