Reviews

YA-Flowing descriptions, scientific details, and unique individuals unite in this anthology composed primarily of excerpts from Michener's earlier works. The stories provide a variety of animal personalities and actions. The gentle, the stubborn, the vicious, and the humorous all fight to survive in their own unique ways. The animals always remain true to their natural instincts. Frequently they are called by their species name; sometimes, though, the author has given them affectionate, Latinized versions of their scientific names. Although the brevity of the selections and the inclusion of line drawings may appeal to younger students, the vocabulary is a bit challenging. Dialogue is kept to a minimum and is only used in those few stories where humans appear. A wonderful opportunity for students to become acquainted with a talented writer without having to tackle one of his longer works.-Claudia Moore, W.T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
