Reviews

Readers learn how particular characteristics, such as the barn owl’s unevenly set ears and the tail of the luna moth, help the creatures thrive in the dark. In some cases, basic data like the animal’s size is not provided. For example, in Luna Moths the body length is given and not the wingspan. Vivid photographs capitalize on the nighttime environments, often showing the animals set dramatically against dark backgrounds. A useful closing spread presents a full animal view with captions and insets to highlight key body parts. Images do not always directly match the text. The statement “older aye-ayes live alone,” for example, accompanies a photo of two together with an egg. Appealing to browsers and could fill some subject holes.
