Reviews

"An appealing, elegantly designed introduction to another much-maligned species."--Kirkus, STARRED review

"A fascinating, informative, and inclusive window into a feared and misunderstood species."--Booklist, STARRED review

"Montgomery shamelessly sells the spotted hyena as delightful and misunderstood, so animal-loving readers will be pleased to take up its cause."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, STARRED review

"The narrative unfolds with all the intrigue of a detective story...Photo-filled and perceptive."--Publishers Weekly

"
Another strong contribution to the Scientists in the Field series...a deeply detailed account of life in the field."--Horn Book Magazine

"
Because Montgomery and Bishop traveled together to do the research for the book, there is a remarkably personal feel throughout as they become part of the team and participate in all aspects of the work, from spotting to packing up gear, and even cradling a sedated hyena's head...A truly strong addition to the series and a worthwhile purchase for most libraries."--School Library Journal
