Under The Microscope

DYPTOE THE YELLOW-EYED PENGUIN by Mary Taylor; Scholastic New Zealand, 1997; 32 pp; $19.95

Reviewed by Vicki Hyde, NZSM

Mary Taylor's writing moves and entrances as much as her wonderful illustrations. Heres a great book for a young naturalist, though don't be surprised at some sniffling -- Taylor is not afraid to show the dangers as well as the delights of the yellow-eyed penguin's life.
