Grade 4-7. Kittinger describes the animals, insects, birds, and fungi that live in or on snags, or dead trees. There is lots of useful information here about the structure, behavior, description, and life cycles of woodpeckers, gray foxes, flying squirrels, porcupines, lichen, and mushrooms. The full-color photographs, while small, are interesting and of good quality, but readers must turn to the text to get an idea of the actual sizes. While challenging in its vocabulary, concepts, and sentence and paragraph structure, Dead Log is a unique and detailed introduction to forest ecology. Nigel Hester's The Living Tree (Watts, 1990) and Bruce Hiscock's The Big Tree (Atheneum, 1991) describe the varieties of life forms that reside in and on living trees.?Jean Pollock, King Country Library System, Seattle, WA
