Editorial Reviews

"The animals' pitches are perfectly tuned to fascinate (and frighten), and Spirin's characteristically rich and detailed artwork doesn't shy from showing these predators doing what they do best." -Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The Deadliest Creature in the World"Together, the intriguing facts and the mesmerizing artwork create a lush book worth poring over again and again. Young animal enthusiasts will find this to be a wonderful introduction to some of the world's most frightening creatures" -School Library Journal, starred review, on The Deadliest Creature in the World"Each narrative will hold readers' attention with its boastful delivery and lethal details." -Booklist on The Deadliest Creature in the World"From the writer and illustrator of Life in the Boreal Forest (2009) and Frog Song (2013), here's another handsome book for the science shelves." -Booklist on The Greatest Dinosaur Ever"The Greatest Dinosaur Ever: Whether read aloud or pored over individually, this book is sure to please anyone who has ever wondered about dinosaurs." -School Library Journal, starred review"This nonfiction book shows why the boreal forest, home to a unique ecosystem of plants and animals, is as big and important as tropical rain forests." -USA Today on Life in the Boreal Forest"* Gorgeously intricate illustrations perfectly complement equally evocative text in this introduction to the great northern, or boreal, forest, which sprawls across the entire northern hemisphere. . . . Guiberson and Spirin manage to successfully convey the beauty and majesty of this forest and its denizens in two dimensions, and a list of organizations devoted to preserving the forest provides further information. An author's note adds urgency to the message about the importance of preservation." -Booklist, starred review on Life in the Boreal Forest"Taking readers through the seasons, Guiberson and Spirin present a verbal and pictorial treasury for nature lovers and young researchers alike." -School Library Journal on Life in the Boreal Forest"Beautiful and useful." -Kirkus Reviews on Life in the Boreal Forest"Each of the stunning paintings in this catalog of the boreal forest, the great northern forest, is breathtakingly beautiful. They are in the style of Audubon and other great naturalist painters. They breathe life into the creatures, give texture to their fur and feathers and capture a sense of place." -The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio on Life in the Boreal Forest
