Product Description:

"Hayes comes across as both a dedicated scientist and a regular person, willing to work hard in pursuit of his scientific work yet quick to laugh and joke with his family and the graduate students he mentors. The result is one of the most compelling portraits of a scientific career the series has produced. Sharp, vivid photographs alternate between portrayals of the scientistsâÂÂat work in field and laboratory settings, as well as relaxing at lab picnics and at homeâÂÂand the frogs they study. The abundant images of many different frog species allow readers to observe in detail each animalâÂÂs characteristics, including size, anatomy, and habitat."--Horn Book, starred review
à ". . . lively volume . . . Well organised and clearly written, the text goes into detail about the process of analysing the chemicalâÂÂs affects on the frogs, but pulls back from specifics to show how the experiment fits into the larger picture . . . Excellent colour photos offer clear pictures of frogs and of this scientific team at work in the field and in the lab . . . Throughout the book, Turner portrays Hayes as both a colourful personality and a dedicated scientist: the final chapter opens with a discussion of his four ear piercings and concludes with an overview of his research. A vivid, realistic view of one scientist at work."--Booklist,àstarred review

". . . a nifty narrative that conveys science in action, offers some insight into environmental damage, and provides a vivid portrait of an energetic and charismatic (and hunky) young scientist who's clearly inspiring students to take an interest in the field. The visually appealing layout is thick with images of people, making it easy to envision the realities of biological work, and of frogs, from hopping to undergoing dissection . . . useful as an introduction to the creation and execution of an experiment, and it will therefore be invaluable in science classes."--The Bulletin of the Centre for Children's Books,àstarred review

"Of the same sterling quality as Sy Montgomery's engaging The Tarantula Scientist (2004) or her exciting Quest for the Tree Kangaroo (2006, both Houghton), this new addition to a stellar series opens an upbeat window to the adult application of youthful enthusiasms."--School Library Journal, starred review
