Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Boyds Mills Press publishes a wide range of high-quality fiction and nonfiction picture books, chapter books, novels, and nonfiction

Synopsis:

Monkeys. Brilliantly-colored birds. Deadly poison frogs. Ant-infested plants. Wonderful butterflies and strange beetles. These are all characters in the eleven intriguing ecological mysteries described in this book. Each mystery begins when a scientist notices something unusual in tropical nature and asks a question. Why would several monkeys suddenly fall from the trees? How do tiny frogs make deadly poisons? Why are passionvines so difficult to find? Why do certain plants harbor hordes of biting ants? What kind of creature pollinates an odd-looking flower? Follow along as the investigating scientists make observations, track down clues, set up curious experiments, and ultimately discover some of the surprising and hidden connections which make tropical forests so fascinating--and so fragile. Ms. Quinlan's carefully researched illustrations help readers visualize tropical forests, diverse plants and animals, and the details of each mystery. Tall trees and tapirs, monkeys and macaws, frogs, ants, butterflies, and beetles all venture out of the tropics and on to the pages of this well-illustrated book. The Case of the Monkeys That Fell From the Trees And Other Mysteries in Tropical Nature will both fascinate and amaze, leading readers to a greater sense of wonder and appreciation for the complexity of tropical forests, and all of nature.
