Young readers everywhere are fascinated by raptors - by their powerful talons (similar to dinosaurs'), their astonishing eyesight (ten times sharper than ours), and their awesome speed in flight. Raptor! invites children into this wild world with a lively text enhanced by more than 100 full-color images by nature photographer Tom Vexo. Kids are encouraged to explore the mysteries of flight, raptor hunting strategies, and behavior - and to learn how to locate raptors in the wild. Flight silhouettes, range maps, real-life stories of individual birds, and more will satisfy the most voracious raptor enthusiast.
