From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-Patent's lucid text is brimming with enough data on habitat, physiology, and behavior to satisfy the needs of report writers. What sets it apart from the usual run of "animal" books is the reportage on the lifetime activities of Chuck Jonkel, a field biologist who has been studying bears for more than 40 years, and who is particularly enamored of the great white ice bear. His lively statements on serendipitous discoveries, bear behavior, and problems with global warming are sprinkled throughout, as are information boxes and eye-catching color photos. Like Sneed B. Collard's A Whale Biologist at Work (Watts, 2000), Patent's book is important not only for the basic "critter data" it contains, but also for its picture of a scientist at work in the field-a picture that may encourage readers to consider biological careers of their own. Approachable and appealing.
