KIRKUS REVIEW

Natural history on a basis of particular habitat, this presents competently some 29 animals of the tropics. Many are familiar, but there were some new ones to this reader- the chevrotain, the murine opossum, the loris, tarsier, spotted cuscus and binturong. There are capsule studies covering their life cycles and habits, and Helene Carter's informed and decorative drawings enhance what might be a rather sparsely simple text.
