Synopses & Reviews

Review:

'How many trees make a forest?' introduces a section on rainforests, followed by photographs, maps and facts about rainforest ecosystems. In a spread about bacteria, a checklist gives 'Reasons to like bacteria' next to a wedge of blue cheese (also pictured is an unsightly reproduction of an erupting pimple). A few questions feel contrived — 'What's the connection between a slug and an octopus?' — but those growing up in the age of Google will appreciate the information explosion. Ages 10 — up. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
