Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gr 4-6-This oversized, slender volume is jam-packed with illustrations that range from small, bland, color photos to computer-generated images and diagrams to average artists' renditions. Accompanying this visual blitz are data-bearing captions and paragraphs. There are four brief chapters: "Living with El Ni o," "Global Effects," "Climate Change," and "Scientific Studies," each of which is divided into two to four topics. Each one (e.g., "Why Blame El Ni o?," "Ice Ages in the Future," or "Tracking & Predicting") is presented on a double-page spread and accompanied by an introductory sidebar. The busy, visually confusing package includes a counterclockwise, circular time line. If you already own Caroline Arnold's informative, well-written El Ni o (Clarion, 1998), you can forgo this-unless your library is packed with short attention spans that only accept micro sound bites at nanosecond speeds.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
