"Hopeful news in the natural world." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A captivating introduction to the California condor." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Alongside Strombeck's crisp photographs, Montgomery details the realities of their work--from thrilling moments such as spotting a baby chick to long observation sessions where not much happens--and has a knack for evocative descriptions. Though the condor's future remains tenuous, Montgomery's compelling page-turner inspires optimism." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A story of unusual triumph for a species so close to extinction....with vivid images that range from the comic to the majestic. Youngsters will be galvanized by the possibilities of this kind of scientific work and keen to find ways to join in." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

"Like many of Montgomery's nonfiction titles in the series, this recent entry does an excellent job of incorporating facts and narrative information about an animal not typically covered in stand-alone titles. The engaging call-to-action message is paired with gorgeous photographs that immerse readers in the condors' world." -- School Library Journal

"Not only entertaining but will also likely impress the whole science class." -- Shelf Awareness
