KIRKUS REVIEW

A warm, personal look at food chains and ecology in the Norsgaards' tangled, semi-wild yard in Connecticut, where insects, birds, and mammals reproduce, feast, and are recycled. Many of the participants--ladybird beetles, spiders, toads, chipmunks--are familiar even in the urban landscape; others--hawk, barred owl, raccoon, opossum, fox, deer--are observed less often, even where they are present. Clear, close-up, full-color photos add interest; appealing details abound. Glossary; index.
