Grade 3-6. Brief and to the point, these series titles have something for everyone. Scientifically minded readers will appreciate the clear presentation of each animal's classification, life span, and specialized traits, while the imaginative will relish the sections about the myths and folklore surrounding each creature. The books present a wide range of information about physical features, habitat, diet, reproduction, and social activities. Up-to-date chapters defining the status of each creature include plans for conservation. "Viewpoints" pages raise controversial issues and present pros and cons. In addition to facts, thought-provoking questions are raised and left for readers to contemplate. ("Should giant pandas be taken from the wild to stock captive breeding facilities?") Lists of "Twenty Fascinating Facts" will attract browsers. Clear, full-color photographs and drawings enhance and clarify the texts. Useful glossaries are included along with suggested reading materials and web sites.?Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
