Would you know a quokka if you saw one? How about a tuatara or pangolin? These are not exactly household words, but they are a few of the many fascinating and curious creatures featured in the What on Earth series. Each volume fully explores the lifestyles and habitats of animals that few people even know exist. Simple, concise text covers the animal's classification, its unique characteristics, its methods of survival, what the animal eats and who eats it, reproduction and care of the young, conservation issues, and the relationship of the animal to humans. Each book's large size and stunning, full-color photographs bring these remarkable subjects to life. A glossary, further reading list, map, and index make What on Earth books as educational as they are fun!

Grade 3-5. Two entries in a series that focuses on some of the world's not-so-well-known creatures. Pout looks at a bottom-dwelling fish found in the Atlantic Ocean; Bustard examines a type of mostly ground-dwelling bird that lives on the grasslands of several continents. The formats are identical. Each title introduces the topics to be covered with a list of questions. The rest of the books answer these questions, which relate to general information about the animal such as appearance, habitat, lifestyle, etc. The simple, clear text is nicely enhanced by full-color photographs that effectively illustrate the subject. Substantial lists for further reading are included. These titles provide good general overviews of creatures that will be unfamiliar to most children, and they give much more information than can be found in a standard encyclopedia article. Good choices for animal-loving browsers looking to expand their horizons and excellent report sources.?Arwen Marshall, New York Public Library
