SPINNING WINGS

A study of the black tern, this puts more story element into its description than other Morrow nature books of this kind (by Louis Darling, Olive Earle and others) have done. However the format is the same. A text in large type is accompanied by pleasingly exact pencil drawings by Dmitri Alexandroff and these catch the small pair of birds and their fledglings at important moments during the summer on a northern lake. A minor plot with an emphasis on the protection of wildlife occurs when an irresponsible boy wounds the male, who then must struggle to regain his strength.
