About the Author

Claire Throp loves sea mammals and spent far too long looking at them while supposedly doing research for this book! She has written children's nonfiction on subjects ranging from countries to sports to. She lives just outside Oxford, England.


Gr 4-6-This series contains so much information about sea mammals that it could easily be titled "Everything you wanted to know about." All of the books follow the same logical progression, beginning with definitions of what sea mammals are as well as the specific animal to be discussed, followed by information about habitat, diet, life cycle, behavior, and intelligence. Final spreads cover threats to the species, ways people can help, and predictions for the creatures' futures. These sections would be excellent prompts for class discussions. The titles are replete with charts, maps, diagrams, and captioned color photos, which all complement and expand the main text. Informative sidebars contain fascinating facts, such as "Scientists studying walruses have discovered that females will adopt calves that lose their real mother," and brief profiles of scientists. Nicely designed and organized with a lively, conversational style and well-researched text, this set will be a first purchase for most collections. (c) Copyright 2013.
