Review:

"A valuable reference that deserves a prominent place on every bookshelf. Kids will have a difficult time getting it away from parents and friends." -- Maryland Magazine, July/August 1995

"An awesome book! The illustrations are wonderful, and the text makes bare facts interesting. Altogether a terrific read." -- Audubon Naturalist News, Dec. 1994.

"Loaded with interesting stuff about the Chesapeake and its creatures and plants. Written so elementary and middle schoolers can understand." -- Chesapeake Bay Magazine, Dec. 1994

"The author knows his stuff and presents it in clear language. The illustrations make it entertaining as well as educational with small marginal jokes." -- The (Easton, Md.) Star-Democrat, Oct. 28, 1994
