KIRKUS REVIEW

In the inimitable Ipcar fashion, this teaches the young reader that long ago the ancestors of his very own pets ran wild in the forests. It also takes him on a tour of the mountains, deserts and jungles where the llama, camel and elephant -- animals he knows from the zoo and circus -- are trained to work for man. Despite the superb illustrations in dramatic hues of rust and gold, the book is uneven as a whole. The second half offers considerably more information than the repetitive text in the beginning.
