Sinopsis:

Huge holes cover a cornfield. The corn plants in the field have been dug up and trampled, and much of the corn is half eaten. What caused this terrible damage? The answer is big, hairy, and running wild. Throughout the South and in much of the United States, feral pigs, many of which were once farm animals, are destroying crops, ruining property, and polluting streams and rivers with their waste. In Feral Pigs: Chomp, Chomp!, students will learn all about these animal invaders. The fascinating account describes how feral pigs spread all over the country, how they dig up and destroy more than a billion dollars worth of property each year, and whats being done to control their numbers. Large color photos, maps, and fact boxes enrich the dramatic details. Written in narrative format, this series is sure to keep young readers engaged.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Covering multiple aspects of a fascinating topic, each title in this excellent set examines a single invasive species. Each selection opens with a current example of the animal's impact and then traces the history of its arrival and provides reasons for its proliferation. The writing is lively and direct and makes good use of specific, intriguing facts, such as the brown tree snake's effect on Guam's electricity. Readers will appreciate learning about efforts being made to deal with the problem, such as traps to reduce the feral pig population. Among the other strong features are frequent quotes from scientists in the field. Page layouts include a well-chosen mixture of large photographs and spot images. One spread, for instance, demonstrates the diversity of the cane toad's diet using separate photos of the creatures feasting on a smaller toad, pet food, and a kangaroo carcass. VERDICT Lively, engaging presentations on specific species and on the general concept.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
