Grade 4 9Montgomery and Bishop continue their outstanding collaboration to introduce readers to scientists at work Here, they document their participation in an expedition to the rugged and remote cloud forest of Papua New Guinea in search of the elusive and fascinating Matschie s tree kangaroo Biologist Lisa Dabek heads a team of scientists from around the world who work with local guides to locate the creatures and fit them with radio collars to learn about them Bishop s photographs capture the expedition in detail Stunning close ups of plants, insects, and birds vie for attention with panoramas of moss draped trees in the eerie, ancient forest Montgomery describes both the hardships and exhilaration of the enterprise She also introduces readers to some of the local people dedicated to conservation efforts Dabek s pursuit of her interest in animals despite problems with asthma and her suggestions about exploring the natural world should encourage young scientists The book s fascinating glimpses into a little explored region will hold the attention of anyone interested in unusual creatures and the efforts to study them.Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Starred Review Montgomery and Bishop follow award wining titles such as The Tarantula Scientist 2004 with another beautifully illustrated entry in the Scientists in the Field series This time, they join researchers on a grueling expedition in Papua New Guinea to track the rare Matschie s tree kangaroo Montgomery gives a chronological, sometimes moment by moment account of the challenging climb into the remote cloud forest, the conditions in camp rice and fern dinners, icy waterfall showers , and the awe inspiring encounters with barely studied animals The text occasionally veers into a casual tone a leech dropped into Lisa s eye. Yuck that seems aimed at a young audience, while the small font, exacting detail, and meandering narrative may demand older readers Still, Montgomery gives an unusually strong, visceral sense of the work and cooperation fieldwork entails and the scope and uniqueness of this particular mission She also communicates the thrill of studying animals in the wild, making observations, and discovering new information As usual, Bishop s color photographs are exemplary and extend the excitement in stunning close ups of creatures and of the team at work Web resources, notes about conservation, and a
