Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
The "Adventures of Riley" series has taken the nine-year-old redhead to places like Alaska, Madagascar, and South Africa on ecological quests; this time Riley visits the lowlands of Nepal to photograph and collect dung and hair samples from endangered tigers. With his Uncle Max, a scientist; Aunt Martha; and cousin Alice, Riley rides an Indian elephant, hikes, and travels in a jeep to spot animals like rhinoceros, chital deer, a clouded leopard, a great hornbill, and finally, a tiger, learning about camera traps and collecting specimens along the way. A combination of fiction and information, the story leans toward the didactic with the characters meant to liven things up, though the dialog is often stilted. The illustrations combine watercolors with photographed backgrounds and animals—sometimes this technique works well; at others, it is not so effective, especially when there's no graphic relationship or transition between awkwardly juxtaposed pages. Especially for younger listeners, the sidebars with extra information can be intrusive, though sale of the books benefits to a small degree the wildlife conservation organizations represented there. The publisher's Web site offers extra activities for Riley fans—mini-movies, short computer games, and activity pages that can be downloaded; also, for a small fee, readers can join a Riley's World club. Colorful though cluttered, Tigers in Terai could serve as an introduction to the animals of Nepal. While it is too long and wordy for a successful read-aloud, independent readers who can peruse it themselves may find it appealing.
Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Riley goes on another adventure with his aunt, uncle, and cousin, and this time they explore the Terai Arc region of India and Nepal in search of the Bengal tiger. This book in the "Adventures of Riley" series begins with a letter to Riley from his uncle that explains that their trip to Nepal and India is to find the endangered Bengal tigers and study their habits so they can figure out ways to help them survive. On the way to find the tigers, they have little personal adventures, ride on an elephant, and encounter a peafowl, a rhinoceros, and other exotic animals. Sidebars list additional facts, and the text includes a glossary. The enticing ending shows Riley at home with a new letter from his uncle and the question, "Where will Riley go next?" The brief text on each page keeps the adventure at a good pace along with large photographs that have illustrations of the characters and some of the animals. These illustrations have been combined with the photos, creating lively effects. Educational and fun, the text gives children a glimpse of the nature and culture of another part of the world.

    Good Series

    Our grandson's name is Riley so he loves this series. We have enjoyed every one of the books together. Think I only have one left to get him and the series will be complete.

    Entertaining and Educational

    This amply illustrated book provides a fun story for young children while also providing them with information, thus making it the best of both worlds (entertaining and educational). I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to be 'fed' something nutritous, not just junk.
