We can all look forward to the next book in this series.
The most critical points of this story tell of the greatest threats to the Tortoise: Ravens, upper respiratory disease, and human impact (urban sprawl, off road vehicles, garbage, poaching...). Ravens delight on eating young Tortoises, and are the greatest threat to their survival for the first 15-20 years of the Tortoise's life. It takes this long for their shells to be big and strong enough to withstand the aggressive Ravens.
The best solution to any problems is education, first, then action. The problems presented in this book are a good start towards awareness for the young reader and in an entertaining way in which they may relate. I was, however, left wanting to know more about the Desert Tortoise. What do they contribute to environmental balance? What do they do? There must be a very important reason for their role in existence. Why, other than loving animals, is it important to save them?
Dale Smith has received kudos in his previous books from Dr. Jane Goodall and Betty White for bringing animal awareness to kids; no small accomplishment! With no intention of placing myself at their level of esteem, I would like to add my own kudos for his effort.
