Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-An inviting look at freshwater biology. In this alphabetically arranged overview, Pallotta surprisingly includes the Snow Monkey, who stays warm by soaking in hot springs, and Nessie, the legendary Loch Ness monster, along with familiar and lesser-known freshwater fish and crustaceans. Biedrzycki's beautiful naturalistic illustrations show each creature in its native habitat. A brief, two or three sentence description for each entry mentions its unique characteristics and explains how it got its name. An serviceable addition that should stimulate children to explore further.-Katrina Yurenka, Jaffrey Public Library, NH
