Grade 4-6-- Fear and ignorance have been Merlin Tuttle's chief obstacles in his fight for the worldwide conservation of bats. This cogently written title focuses on the noted mammalogist's life and work, while also debunking a variety of myths about these much-maligned small animals. The text briefly describes Tuttle's childhood fascination with nature, his formal education and early fieldwork, and the development of new techniques in the field of wildlife photography. Also examined are the general physical characteristics of bats and their ecological importance as pollinators and distributors of seeds. Approximately two dozen photos taken by Tuttle illustrate the text; all but two are in color. These include captivating close-ups of bats in flight and feeding on fruit or insects. Well organized and superbly photographed, this title offers a unique perspective on these gentle mammals and will complement Johnson's Bats (Lerner, 1985) and Pringle's Vampire Bats (Morrow, 1982; o.p.). --Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library
