From Booklist: Grolier has released Mammals, the first cluster of a five-set World of Animals collection intended for the middle-school level and up.

Closely related mammals with similar lifestyles are grouped in 10 volumes. For example, volume 6 covers ruminant herbivores, and volume 10 covers marsupials. Each 128-page volume follows a well-organized format. In clear, concise text intermingled with many color photographs and illustrations, information is presented in three types of articles. The first, introducing major animal groups such as ruminants and marsupials, emphasizes similarities. The second provides overviews of families or closely related groups like deer and their relatives and American opossums. A third type, which constitutes the bulk of the text, with articles ranging from two to six pages, describes individual^B species such as the Muntjac and the Virginia opossum. More than 250 animals are covered. The vivid, detailed photographs and illustrations alone provide great pictorial data that would satisfy the investigation of a younger learner. Cross-referencing--located in the bottom margin--denotes animal, volume, and page number, making additional searching easier. Each volume concludes with a volume-specific species list and glossary, lists of further reading and Web sites, and a full set index.

Especially noteworthy is the feature called a "data panel." Placed on the introductory page for each individual animal, the panel includes the common and scientific names, family, order, size (in imperial units and metric equivalent), a visual comparison of an adult mammal and a six-foot tall human being, key features (habits, breeding, voice, diet, habitat, distribution, and International Union for the Conservation of Nature status), and a locator map showing the normal range. Solid information is presented for the most minimal inquiry. Volumes have reinforced bindings, a critical feature because it is predictable that this set will be used frequently based on traditional grades 6-12 curricula.

Public schools and libraries should plan to include this and future World of Animals publications in their yearly budgets. Subsequent sets--each also consisting of 10 volumes--will cover birds, insects and other invertebrates, fish, and amphibians and reptiles. RBB
