An overview of the world of gulls. Although introductory pages briefly give general information about the species, the main body of the book focuses on the herring gull, once nearly extinct and now found in numerous locations in North America. As in Gibbons's other nonfiction titles, both illustration and text provide basic, easy-to-understand facts. Habitat, physical characteristics, and behaviors are discussed with just the right amount of detail for young readers?informing without overwhelming. The format is attractive with framed, simply drawn watercolor illustrations showing the birds in the foreground against bright colorful seashore or seascape backgrounds of dominant blues and greens. Appendixes include illustrations of other gulls native to North America labeled with their names and range area and a page of additional facts. Paperback 28 pages
