Tarantula in My Purse and 172 Other Wild Pets, The: Reviewed

Author:Jean Craighead George
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 8 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 8 and up
Year of publication:1996

The perfect book for the young reader who wants to adopt every stray creature he or she sees.

In this non-fiction collection, Jean Craighead Geoge, author of My Side of the Mountain, describes the many wild animals she and members of her family have adopted over many years, their adventures and how they fared in captivity, and (for most), how they came to be released.

George is careful to mention the newly changed laws that preclude non-professionals from bringing creatures in from the wild in most cases.

These stories, even the sad ones, are sure to gladden the heart of any young naturalist.
