With all-new art, substantially changed text, new charts and a new trim size, the revised edition of Aliki's Wild and Woolly Mammoths, first published in 1977, could almost be a brand-new book from the popular picture book author. Its subject, of course, remains the same. Preserved for 39,000 years under snow and ice, the body of a woolly mammoth was discovered in Siberia in 1900. Using information from this site along with more recent archeological findings, scientists have determined when and where these ancestors of the elephant lived?and how they were hunted by hungry cave dwellers. With concise text and informative art, Aliki illuminates the timeless appeal of these long-gone animals?and drops a gentle warning about the possible fate of tusked descendants (HarperCollins, $14.95 32p ages 4-8 ISBN 0-06-026276-1 Jan.)
