About the Author

To research her various books and magazine articles, Susan E. Goodman has snowshoed through mountain forests, tried using a blowgun in the Amazon, and scared a moose at rest -- and herself in the bargain. Years ago, she went to U.S. Space Camp as a participant and loved the 1/6 Gravity Chair. Ms. Goodman lives with her family in Boston, Massachusetts.


Gr 2-4-On a typical workday, John Walsh, a member of the World Society for the Protection of Animals, might rescue a sloth from a treetop in a flooded jungle in Suriname or a dog from a building about to topple after an earthquake in Japan. This book recounts three of his daring missions. The suspenseful yet informative text and full-color photographs of the actual rescues in progress will draw in even reluctant readers. This is a great choice for booktalks or as a starting point for discussions of geography (a simple map begins each chapter), animals, or current events.-Diane Janoff, Queens Library, CLASP Office, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
