"Youngsters can examine beautiful and very detailed illustrations of different types of reptiles while they learn why these creatures differ and compare with other animals. The book presents facts about snakes, lizards, turtles, crocodiles, and alligators, especially their size, eating habits, habitats, natural predators, and prey. The book also answers the question of 'Where do reptiles go in winter?' An Author's Note describes how Arnosky safely observes reptiles. It also offers a further reading list and a metric equivalent chart for readers not familiar with American measurement systems. Arnosky's love of nature is contagious and spills across the pages. Because of its comprehensive coverage, this book is valuable for both and school and public libraries." --"Library Media Connection "
*"Arnosky's painterly eye and personal observations match handsomely in this face-to-face experience . . . handsome, informative." --School Library Journal (starred review)
