Did you know that “only 10 percent of the world’s deserts are sandy”? Or that “only rain forest habitats have a larger variety of plants and animals than deserts”? With surprising facts, this volume challenges the preconception that “deserts are hot, sandy places where nothing can survive.” Deserts and some of their inhabitants, including saguaro cacti, Gila monsters, and fennec foxes are described in simple, clear language. The book’s design is crisp and clean, with attractive, full-page color photographs of various desert landscapes and animals. Threats to desert habitats are discussed, including mining and climate change. Back matter includes a glossary, suggestions for further reading, a link to publisher-approved Web sites, and an index.
