KIRKUS REVIEW

Perhaps the nicest book in this section of the series (at least, if you're a pushover for Africa), this gives a running commentary on a dozen animals- starting with the elephant. Joining his chapters with connecting phrases like- ""Down the river away"" or ""Far out on the plains"",- Mr. Purcell works his way through baboons, buffaloes, zebras, hippos, giraffes and so on, making his facts interesting and living up to the quite imaginative two-tones by Katherine Evans.
