Review:

"Well-written texts clearly convey basic information about the lives and habits of each animal including where it lives, what it eats, and how it reproduces. The chapters are nicely organized with headings and subheadings that provide a good guide to the topics covered. Bright, colorful photos, some full-plate, add much to books' overall appeal. The colorful photos and intriguing texts will attract some browsers and general readers too. Useful additions to natural history collections."
-- School Library Journal (March 2003) (School Library Journal 20030301)

"...Hirschmann emphasizes each animal's awe-inspiring traits while giving plenty of basic information... Rays mentions our relationships to these "pancake sharks," a fascination that stretches back to antiquity... plenty of sharp, underwater photos, a glossary, and suggestions for further reading... these are clear, direct introductions to the animals that will find wide use in classrooms and support reports."
-- Booklist (March 2003) (Booklist 20030301)

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Kris Hirschmann's Humpback Whales.

Gr. 4-7. In these titles in the Creatures of the Sea series, Hirschmann emphasizes each animal's awe-inspiring traits while giving plenty of basic information. Brief chapters in each book present the animals' basic anatomy and then describe how they move, feed, defend themselves, mate, and give birth. Whales includes additional sections on the animal's endangered status as well as a lively overview of their complex, mysterious songs. Rays mentions our relationship to these "pancake sharks," a fascination that stretches back to antiquity. Both titles include plenty of sharp, underwater photos, a glossary, and suggestions for further reading. Visuals showing the animals' relationship to other species would have added interest, but these are clear, direct introductions to the animals that will find wide use in classrooms and support reports.
