Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2016 December)
Gr 2–4—Flaherty's and Christopher's efforts have resulted in a solid but brief introduction to polar bears. Mostly fodder for simple reports, it is just right to build a foundational interest in the subject, covering diet, habitat, biology, and folklore. The illustrations depict scenes from the text and are also occasionally decorative. The mammal's predatory behavior is depicted in cool colors without a drop of blood. There is a gentleness to the work as well as power; a white luminescent skeleton pops against a black background in a spread on anatomy. However, the total lack of back matter is a drawback. VERDICT Although slight, this is just the ticket to spark interest in zoology enthusiasts.—Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA. Copyright 2016 School Library Journal.
