Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5-An attractive overview of the history of El Ni-o, from the observations of early Peruvian fisher folk to those of present-day scientists. Seibert's conversational text describes how the interweaving of oral tradition, material from personal journals and ships' logs, and research since the late 1800s has given today's scientists a handle on this extreme weather phenomenon. Ellis's stylized illustrations, diagrams, and maps provide a cheerful, eye-catching counterpoint, pulling all into a harmonious whole. The work closes with two pages on the effects of a powerful El Ni-o on wildlife, crops, and precipitation. While this slender picture-book volume does not pack in as much data as Caroline Arnold's El Ni-o (Clarion, 1998) or Susan Dudley Gold's Blame It on El Ni-o (RSVP, 1999), it is a pleasing production for younger readers.
