Reviews

Gr 4-6-Imagining what the Earth will be like in post-human periods 5, 100, and 200 million years from now, Pye bases her vision on the evolutionary development of common creatures. An introductory section presents information on contemporary climates, habitats, and animals as well as evolution. From here, giant leaps are made to the animals and habitats of the future. These speculations are presented in a factual manner with realistic illustrations depicting habitats, food preferences, and hidden dangers. Sidebars showing "Evolution in Action" describe the human-age ancestors of these future beings. Full-color computer art mixed with good photographs and an interesting and varied layout complete this highly readable work that will be useful for reports and enjoyed as recreational reading. Dougal Dixon and John Adams's The Future Is Wild (Firefly, 2003) contains much of the same information and some identical illustrations, but is written on a higher reading level.-Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, Trinity-Pawling School, Pawling, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
