KIRKUS REVIEW

In the Ditmars tradition -- the adventures of a naturalist's wife and her share in the search for specimens for the new reptile house in the National Zoo. Fascinating account of the search in the tropics, of the people she meets through her strange pets, of the lives of those connected with a zoo, of the investigations of the zoos of Europe, prior to building the new reptile house, of adventures in Cuba, in Central America, in British Guiana. Good reading for adults as well as young people from twelve up.
