KIRKUS REVIEW

The jovial woodsman ("born in a tree and raised by bees") is back, inviting readers to join him in the summer woods. Crinkleroot pauses during his walk to observe a nesting sparrow, five kinds of fern, and animal trails, and to wade in a clear stream. He also points out three kinds of ticks, four different types of stinging insects, and a variety of poisonous plants--without once losing his good humor. Sprightly drawings washed in soft, woodland hues tickle the funny bone while providing details that are accurate enough to use for identification. A final page gives additional sensible tips for dealing with hazards (e.g., how to remove a bee's stinger). A cheerful introduction to some of the simple pleasures of the natural world.
