An intense drama unfolds at the end of the day on the Serengeti Plain. A tawny eagle father scouts for prey to feed his young chick back at the nest. As the sun begins to set, the daytime animals become inactive and invisible. After several close calls, the father has yet to secure the needed food. In the blaze of the setting sun, nighttime creatures begin to emerge, and still the father hunts. From a bird's-eye view, the refuge at the Serengeti National Park is teeming with wildlife large and small. Hazy illustrations in watercolor and colored pencil depict the energy of the eagle's hunt and the diversity found in the park. Four-line rhyming stanzas capture the emotion and action of the hunt, which eventually concludes with success. CCBC categories: The Natural World.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
