Summary

From the puffin to the spectacled bear, the takin to the white giraffe, the tree kangaroo to the hammerhead shark, each of the seventy-two two-page spreads in this book covers a different species and its natural habitat in detail, as well as its relationship with mankind. Extraordinary Endangered Animals includes large-format photographs, illustrations, maps that indicate each animal's habitat, and in-depth text that covers each animal's unique features and provides key figures, interesting trivia, and information on major threats to the species' survival.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The topic of endangered animals is often covered in nonfiction series that focus on one animal per book, so it's nice to have this thick compendium as an all-in-one resource. It's organized into six geographical groupings (Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa, and Oceania), each of which features five or six threatened species. The animals are profiled in colorful spreads that include gorgeous, plus-size photos and watercolor illustrations; text blocks that describe each species; a look at how the animal has become endangered; and a map indicating where it can be found. The spotlighted creatures range from the well known (Siberian tigers, Asian elephants, Komodo dragons) to the obscure (hyacinth macaws, takins, western spadefoot toads), underlining the message that animals both great and small are in peril. This is as much a good survey of the world's vast zoological variety as it is a reminder of why it's so important to help preserve the great diversity of life on earth.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Detailed, large-scale photographs and intricate drawings depict 35 endangered species from around the globe, including the California condor, the sea otter, the golden lion tamarin, and the sawfish. Silhol and Guerive describe the habitat, behavior, and endangered status of each animal, while sidebars place each in human context, implicating our role in their endangerment ("The black-footed ferret can no longer feed itself when the prairie dog, its favorite meal, falls victim to intensive farming"). Honest but not downbeat, this informative collection encourages readers to take action before these species disappear. Ages 9-12. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
