Synopsis: Explores the vast array of unusual creatures still to be found in the Galapagos Islands

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-6-- This ambitious book tackles a difficult subject, showing the range of activities of creatures on the Galapagos Islands during one day, with mixed success. Gelman's narrative is evocative, lyrical, and graceful, departing from the usual life-cycle arrangement that children's books normally employ to introduce animals. However, this approach results in a sketchy, somewhat disjointed and haphazard tour through the islands. The author's explanation of evolution, using such examples as the divergent development of land and marine iguanas, the Swallow-tailed gull, the flightless Galapagos cormorant, is brief but clear. But some species of animals and birds are endemic to particular islands, and readers would never know this since ranges and correct scientific names are not given. In addition, the lack of an index limits the book's usefulness for reports. De Roy's excellent quality full-color photographs are treated shabbily here; while all are clearly focused and well matched with the text, many are cropped so tightly that little of the surrounding landscape is visible. In comparison to her adult book, Gal apagos: Islands Lost in Time (Viking, 1980; o.p.) , published under the name Tui De Roy Moore, the beauty of the islands is lost; the photos could have been taken in any preserve. Millicent E. Selsam's Land of the Giant Tortoise: The Story of the Gal apagos (Four Winds, 1977; o.p.) has more text and, with its index, serves well for assignments in upper-elementary grades. Although flawed in certain areas, this photo-essay will fill a gap in many collections; young readers will need to seek out adult books to complete the picture. --Ellen Fader, Westport Public Library, CT
