From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6?The desert fox, or fennec, smallest of the wild dogs, is an endearing animal often featured in children's zoos in exhibits on the senses because of its remarkable hearing. So, even though it's never found in North America, it will be familiar to many readers, and they should enjoy learning more about it and the remarkable adaptations it has developed to survive in a desert environment. This gorgeous photo essay follows one particular family. Their habitat and its seasonal changes, the Bedouin people who sometimes keep these animals as pets, and other creatures that share their home are all brought into the story. Readers watch the four cubs grow, play, and learn to hunt; follow the mother on a hunting trip; and see a rare visit from the affectionate father. Laukel smoothly conveys the facts through text and full-color photographs. Though fennecs are mentioned in many juvenile titles on wild dogs, foxes, and the desert, this is the only book on the topic currently in print.?Susan Oliver, Hillsborough County Science Library at MOSI, Tampa, FL
