Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Reviewed with Sandra Markle's Lions.

Gr. 2-5. Titles in the new Animal Predators series focus on the few predators at the top of the food chain. Clear, detailed explanations describe the unique developmental path animals in each species must follow as they grow from young animals to fierce adult predators that must hunt for survival. Full-page, colorful action photos show the individual species in various stages of maturity as well as images of predator and prey in their natural surroundings, predators stalking and attacking their prey, and the feast following a successful hunt. The straightforward, descriptive text and superb photos give these titles surefire appeal to middle readers. A glossary and book and video resources are appended. Karen Hutt

Reviewers have heaped praise on Markle's books, including:
Outside and Inside Bats "The author presents a particularly felicitous accord of words and pictures in an outstanding science book for the primary grades." The Horn Book Magazine
