KIRKUS REVIEW

Fegely takes every possible approach to the ecology of the woodlot--that patch of forest that remains amidst farmland or suburb after most has been cleared away. Thus the woodlot ""high rise"" is examined layer by layer from floor to canopy, then season by season, animal by animal and finally tree by tree. It's an uninspired, methodical treatment--even that most fascinating creature, the praying mantis, is just another item for routine notice, with her more interesting habits never even mentioned--though Fegely does provide a conscientious rundown of one more ecosystem for those fifth grade reports.
