Claire Llewellyn is an award-winning author of more than 100 nonfiction books for children on a wide range of subjects, including weather, reptiles, and creepy-crawlies.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 4—The wise bird is back. Having fielded questions on an assortment of scientific topics in earlier titles, the eminent Dr. K. Fisher now answers questions about life on planet Earth. Queries, in postcard and letter format, arrive from an aardvark, emu, chinchilla, viper, penguin, and other animals, and his replies give insight into such topics as the Earth's core, salmon hatching, and ocean tides. Between questions, the doctor offers guides to continents and oceans, mountains, rivers, and world climates. While there isn't enough information for reports, the book is both entertaining and informative. Mixed-media illustrations, color photos, and cartoon drawings complement the text. While adding to the visual appeal, the variety of fonts and font sizes may challenge some readers. Overall, though, the layout, illustrations, and tongue-in-cheek humor are sure to be a draw for most children.—Michele Sealander, Hamburg School, NJ
