Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Traveling to Glacier National Park, Olivia Landon, a wildlife veterinarian, hopes to discover why grizzly bear cubs have been disappearing. Accompanying Olivia are her husband, twelve-year-old son Jack, and Ashley, the younger daughter. It seems that Ashley has read a forbidden book about actual grizzly bear attacks and is terrified about the trip. Her behavior becomes stranger and stranger and she actually ventures off alone when she knows that in bear territory one must travel with a partner. Her secret turns out to be Miguel, a young illegal Mexican boy who is desperate to get to Seattle. Miguel is escaping a life of poverty and is being hunted by immigration officials. The children are obsessed with helping him and are caught in a dangerous situation where they become the hunted. Vivid description of the park, information about bears and steps being taken to protect them, along with an exciting plot make the book an enjoyable read. As the fifth novel in the "National Park Mystery" series, Jack and Ashley continue their sleuthing relating to various wildlife mishaps in parks throughout the United States. 2000, National Geographic Society, Ages 9 to 12, $15.95. Reviewer: Laura Hummel
From The Critics
In the past, grizzly bears have erroneously been regarded as horrible killers. Today, however, ecologists know better. This National Geographic Society "National Park Mystery" focuses on how grizzly bears function in their natural habitat through an interesting plot involving a family camping at Glacier National Park. Included are park information, photographs, and an afterward. A handsome gift for an animal-loving youth. 2000, National Geographic Society, $15.95. Ages 10 to 12. Reviewer: A. Braga SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8

Gr 4-8-In this, their fifth mystery, the Landon family travels to Glacier National Park to investigate the disappearance of grizzly bear cubs. For 12-year-old Jack, the real mystery lies in his sister's strange behavior. When their parents attend a briefing with park administrators regarding the bear problem, Jack volunteers to stay behind at the campsite with Ashley. As soon as the adults leave, she disappears into the woods and returns with a young Mexican named Miguel, an illegal alien seeking a better lifestyle and trying to reach a former teacher who lives in Seattle. When the three children accidentally discover the reason for the cubs' disappearance, namely poachers, they devise a plan and rescue the bears. Their ingenuity and daredevil tactics come at a price, however, as the drugged mother grizzly awakens and reacts violently toward them. Events unfold at a rapid, steady pace with the children helping one another thwart the attacks of the grizzly, and finally being rescued by Mrs. Landon and the local park rangers. While the story lacks depth, it does work as an exciting adventure, with the youngsters confronting the hazards of nature in order to restore its delicate balance. Miguel's fate is conveniently and happily resolved. Themes of friendship, family love, and the importance of protecting wildlife are nicely woven around likable characters and a cohesive plot line.-Janet Gillen, Great Neck Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

    The Hunted

    In this book two kids stay alone with a stow away who is a Mexican Alian. Left alone in this national park is not a very safe thing to do, thanks to the grizzly bear that roam the park. The tree kids meet with a grizzly bear which starts the most exciting event in the book. If you want to know more don't call on me, READ!!!

    AWESOME!!!!!

    We read this book as a read aloud in class. We never wanted to stop reading it!! I think it so cool that she writes about things that acually happened but she give them a nice twist. It does get kind of nerveracking when you get to the grizzly part. If you've read any of her other books you'll love this one!!!!
