Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7-- A multifaceted examination of the intricacies of feather construction that also explains molting, preening, protective coloration, and flight, in addition to showing variations of feather placement on exotic birds. Short chapters include boldface terms that are defined in the glossary and a variety of small photographs and drawings. Generally appealing, the full-color photographs tend to emphasize the dramatic appearance of rather uncommon birds. Since several unfamiliar species that are mentioned are not pictured, children may need a reference book or field guide to fully understand the material. A preliminary list of "Fast Facts About Feathers" features highlights from the rest of the book. Overall, the discussion is a bit heavy on miscellany and becomes sketchy in many areas after the initial description of feather structure, but the interesting material on the make-up of feathers adds nicely to other titles on birds likely to be found on library shelves. --Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston

As an adult, I picked up this book thinking it wouldn't be very interesting. I wanted to see how it was written for kids. Little did I know what a surprise I was to have. I now know the complexities of feathers, and I understand feathers like never before. Anyone interested in birds, or flight should get this book!
