ANIMALS AND PLANTS by Carroll Lane Fenton


Email this review


With so wide a range of books in the area of natural history to his credit, it seems odd that Fenton should turn out as perfunctory and haphazard a job as this ""introduction"". Topics vary from a description of winter birds -- to food for birds -- to animal-eating plants -- to habits and food and homes -- to colors, shapes and structures. There are some 80 line drawings, too tiny for identification value in many instances, and 64 pages promised in three colors -- all of which may enhance the value of a text that seems unfocussed and without any binding thread to give it continuity of interest.
