Parrots Over Puerto Rico
By The Horn Book Magazine
This gorgeously illustrated history of the critically endangered Puerto Rican parrot, along with the settlement and development of Puerto Rico, underscores the environmental consequences of human populations on indigenous animal species. . . . With stunning paper-and-fabric artwork on each spread, the book is laid out vertically to best give a sense of height. Ruffly feathered parrots, colorfully clothed people, and a series of Puerto Rican landmarks are located within dense, intricate illustrations in which layer upon layer of branches, leaves, ferns, and other greenery capture the lushness of the landscapes.
