About the Author:

Hope Ryden has written four nonfiction books on wild horses, and her articles and photographs on the subject have appeared in National Geographic and other publications. She is also the author of the novel Wild Horse Summer. Ms. Ryden lives in New York City and Wolf Lake, New York.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4?Ryden provides a brief smattering of facts about flying and crawling creatures (called "critters" by the author) in this alphabetical photo gallery. A large, full-color picture of each creature (from ants and aphids to a zebra longwing butterfly) is captioned by a small descriptive paragraph. Unfortunately, the information is not explicit enough to be helpful to children unfamiliar with insects and spiders. Not much explanation is provided about larvas (though "lavaral state" is mentioned) and a fly's mouth is described as "strange looking" without further elaboration. In some cases, the vague language can be misleading as when the author tells readers that katydids occasionally sing "katy DIDN'T!" Libraries will be better served by individual "Eyewitness" series titles or the "Nature Watch" series (Carolrhoda). Bianca Lavies's Killer Bees (1994) and Wasps at Home (1991, both Dutton) also provide a more lively account of the world of creepy crawlies.?Ellen M. Riordan, Enoch Pratt Free Library, Baltimore, MD
