Review
Gr 1-3-Crinkleroot, the little forest-dwelling man who was "born in a tree and raised by bees" is back. Here, he takes readers on a tour of his home and shows how the forest and its inhabitants change with the seasons. Spring wildflowers, otters swimming in the river in summer, autumn leaves, and animal tracks in the winter snow are all depicted. The book combines chatty prose sprinkled with facts and watercolor illustrations-some of which are realistic (like thewildflowers) and others, like Crinkleroot himself, that are more cartoonlike. This combination of styles lends a certain charm, but this work is less successful than others in the series because of its lack of focus. Although it's loosely structured around the theme of seasons, the author often digresses. For example, the discussion of spring wildflowers segues into a section on growing popcorn. The text also incorporates project ideas and puzzles and quizzes. The latter are problematic in that they may be too difficult for the children who will enjoy the simple text. Fans of the series will be the most likely audience for this book, although parts may seem familiar as they've been taken from other "Crinkleroot" titles (S & S).-Arwen Marshall, New York Public Library Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
