About the Author:

Karen Patkau is the award-winning author and illustrator of many books for children. Creatures Great and Small, which she wrote and illustrated, was a Shining Willow Nominee 2008 and a Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice 2007 book. The companion book, Creatures Yesterday and Today, was on the Book Sense Summer 2008 Children's Pick List. Both titles were Resource Links Best of the Years selections. The first three books in Karen's Ecosystem Series - Who Needs a Jungle? Who Needs a Swamp? Who Needs an Iceberg? - were published to much critical acclaim. Who Needs a Swamp? received a Silver Birch Express 2013 nomination and was a Green Book Festival 2012 Honor Book. Who Needs and Iceberg? was a Green Book Festival 2013 Honor Book. Who Needs a Jungle? was chosen for the Canadian Children's Book Centre Best Books for Kids & Teens 2012.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-"We all do" is the given answer to the titular question in each of these mediocre additions to a 2012 series. Like the three preceding volumes, each surveys a particular biome with a combination of simple observations and painted landscape (or aquatic) scenes. Along with muddy, low contrast colors, the busy illustrations have a flattened look, as if images of wildlife are laid down over generic backgrounds. Not until a note under the map at the end of each volume are readers informed that they have gotten not a general worldwide overview but a profile of a particular desert, reef, or prairie. Moreover, closing galleries of previously introduced flora and fauna supply additional facts but are disconnected from the preceding contents, as the volumes are unpaged.α(c) Copyright 2014.
