Grade 3-6-- The life cycle of the northern elephant seals of Ano Nuevo Island, Calif., is described in this latest winning addition to the series. Johnson begins with an explanation of pinnipeds--the fin-footed mammal group to which seals belong--and discusses the major differences between seals, sea lions, and walruses. The life cycle is carefully explained, beginning with "hauling out" of the Pacific and continuing through birth of the pups, life on land, mating, and the return to the sea. Specific male behaviors such as challenging to become the beachmaster are discussed. Johnson also covers life at sea, including special adaptations of these animals to long periods under water. Modern research on the animals is also touched upon. The combination of Lanting's outstanding color photography and the clear and attractive layout of the text make this book a visual delight. Sanford and Green's The Elephant Seal (Crestwood, 1987) is weak by comparison; Johnson's book will appeal to browsers as well as report writers and should be a part of most natural history collections. --Kathryn Weisman, Willowbrook School, Glenview, Ill.
