Emilie U Lepthien is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From School Library Journal:
Gr 3-4--Two more attractive and accessible series entries. Sea Turtles covers the basic life style of these far-roving marine reptiles, giving information on their adaptations to their environment, feeding, mating, nest-building, the dangers to hatchlings, and the threat to adults from pollution and loss of habitat. Because sea turtles are such wanderers, not much is known about their life at sea, but the information given here is accurate. The book closes with a plea for conservation measures to protect these endangered creatures. Walruses does much the same for these tusked marine mammals, but because they are more completely studied there are more details given about them. Again, the narrative ends with international efforts to preserve both the walrus and its environment even though it is not considered threatened or endangered. Libraries that own Caroline Arnold's Sea Turtles (Scholastic, 1994), Frank Staub's Sea Turtles (Lerner, 1994), or Kathy Darling's Walrus (Lothrop, 1991) might still wish to consider purchasing these titles.
