Product Description


A National Science Teachers Association/Children's Book Council Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children


Slaughtering elephants for their ivory; shooting bears for their gall bladders; capturing sea turtles for soup. In the name of vanity, fashion, and greed, man stalks and kills wild animals -- and gets away with it, even when it is clearly against the law. But now scientists have a way to catch and convict poachers. In a laboratory in Ashland, Oregon, they analyze clues to link suspects to crimes. In words and pictures, this book tells a poignant story and reveals how science can indeed save the day.

Review

"Unfolds almost like a mystery novel . . . A book that will be welcomed by mystery fans and anyone who cares about animals."  - ALA Booklist

"A riveting and thorough account of dedicated people banding together with the help of science and the law to catch an elk poacher . . . . A real-life animal detective story."   - Kirkus

This book presents science as exciting, worthwhile work, and from many young readers will spark a 'Hey, I could do that!' reaction."  

- John Peters, The Five Owls

"If all information books were structured as well as this one, students would read and read and read."

     - Children's Literature
