Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-A potentially fascinating book that lacks focus. It includes a chapter called ``All about Antlers'' with no explanation of how they fit into a book on teeth and tusks. Each two-page topic treatment consists of a few large print sentences that explain the ``chapter'' title and five illustrated examples with accompanying captions. However, not all the information matches. For example, in ``In For The Kill,'' readers are told, ``A hunter has long pointed teeth on either side of its front teeth. These are called canines.'' A crocodile and a ground beetle, both of which lack canine teeth, are shown. Black outlines of animals on green tinted backgrounds border the sides of the pages, adding to the cluttered look. The index is difficult to use, e.g., readers will not find any entry under ``whales''; instead, they must look under ``narwhal,'' ``strap-toothed whale,'' and ``beaked whale.'' All in all, this book tries to cover too many aspects of too many animals without giving enough information about any one subject.-Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
