Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula Rohrlick
Part of the strikingly designed "Predator vs. Prey" series, this title examines what happens when a Polar bear attempts to make a meal of an Arctic ringed seal. The contenders are depicted in large, close-up full-color photographs, and the brief text provides details like their sizes and weights, what they eat, and what their battle strengths are. A map indicates where in the Arctic these adversaries live. Bright yellow "Did You Know?" insets highlight fascinating facts, like how seals make air holes in the ice and how big polar bears' paws are. The creatures' encounter is related in the present tense in play-by-play fashion, which helps to heighten the excitement, and the outcome may surprise some readers. A glossary of terms and a brief bibliography of books and websites are appended, along with an index. Others in this sure-to-appeal series, which would be a great choice for reluctant readers, include: Tarantula vs. Bird; Crocodile vs. Wildebeest; Dolphin vs. Fish; Lion vs. Gazelle; Owl vs. Mouse; Shark vs. Penguin; and Wolf vs. Elk.
