Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4-7. The title mentions the most familiar members of the crocodilian family, but this book also includes information about caimans and gharials. Straight off, the authors tackle the familiar confusion between alligators and crocodiles, a sign they are attentive to reader interests. The chapters consist of question-and-answer sequences and are illustrated with clear, full-color photographs. The authors describe both animal behavior and anatomy, and there's some discussion of conservation issues as well as an assortment of interesting tidbits--among them, a description of what a croc does directly before biting you. ~--Mary Harris Veeder"
