Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "As if the full-bleed National Geographic-worthy photos aren't enough of a hook, the books in the Living Wild series each start off with a dramatic bang. In Alligators, a turtle's lazy swim turns disastrous when a log comes to life with a vicious snap. After that comes a thorough description of the living fossil's physical characteristics, behaviors, and place within their American and Chinese ecosystems. Each book lucidly discusses conservation and the animals' often tenuous relationship with humans. The layout is uniformly simple but effective, constructed with a nice balance of main text for the report writers, smaller chunks of esoterica for browsers, and, again, those killer photos. All in all, upper-echelon animal books for middle-grade researchers.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"
