KIRKUS REVIEW

There's a definite place for Maeterlinck's books on natural history -- his The Life of the Bee is a classic. Now, into the subject of water spiders and pigeons he has woven imagination and poetry, while at the same time he remains consistently accurate and scientific. There's something of his philosophy of life, something of his exalting lowly creatures for their achievements, and comparing his fellow men none too favorably for his. Good reading, in its field.
