Booklist Review

These three latest entries in the World Life Library series are good introductions to their subjects. Three charismatic animals are profiled in these approachable overviews, each written by an expert on the species. Covering such basics as general biology, the animals' social life, what they eat, and reproduction, each book also explores what makes the animals unique: sperm whales are the most accomplished marine animal divers, and implications of this on the whales' physiology and hunting techniques are well covered. Lions are the most social of the cats, and the effects this sociability has makes for fascinating reading. Finally, polar bears are the northernmost bears and have interesting adaptations for living on permanent ice. All three books are well illustrated with many excellent photos, and all have nice compilations of facts about their subjects. Their very reasonable prices complete an overall recommendation for the entire series. --Nancy Bent
