Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The format of the book consists entirely of numbered one or two sentence facts about tigers and their behavior. For example, "Tigers are the only big cats that often swim." Although this may seem like a disjointed approach, the facts actually are organized logically (facts about tigers' stalking and hunting behaviors are grouped together, for example). Breaking the facts down into labeled sections or chapters would have been even more helpful, however. Instead, young researchers must either read the book cover to cover or else rely on the brief index. Several of the facts in this volume deal with tigers' endangered status. Color photographs appear on almost every page, including close up photos of tigers' faces and action pictures of tigers jumping, stalking, and swimming. A color-coded opening map indicates tiger species' natural habitats, and a glossary defines key boldfaced terms. A guide for further reading and a list of web sites will lead readers to other more in-depth resources. This is a volume in the "101 Facts About Predators" series. 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 7 to 12.
