Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Where can you find moose, skunks, foxes and owls? The surprising answer to this question is provided in Taylor's in-depth examination of urban animals. In colorful two-page spreads peppered with photographs, trivia bits and valuable information, Taylor exposes the "wild side" of urban animals. Although such animals vary from swallows to storks or rats to raccoons, they all share a common attraction to the city—a place of year-round food, warmer temperatures in winter months and a variety of shelters. Chapters focusing on the urban animals of each continent allow readers to compare and contrast animals around the world. Further chapters about mating, nesting, nocturnal activities and urban migration explore the survival and adaptation of these animals. With engaging photographs, enticing sidebars and a wealth of information, this book will be a useful resource for science and biology classrooms. 2000, Barron's Educational Series, $5.95. Ages 8 to 14. Reviewer: Leah Hanson
