Bunting, Eve. Secret Place. Illustrated by Ted Rand. Clarion, 1996. ISBN 0-395-64367-8. $14.95. Unpaginated. B Pre+ PB Reviewed by Vicky M. Turner In the city, probably in every city, there is a secret place, left over from when the city was woods and streams and wild animals. Bunting tells of just such a place where wild ducks swim and nest, and where even a coyote and opossum may be found. But, warns the book, we must be careful of letting out the secret of such places, because they may become even more rare than they already are. Both Bunting and Rand have done a nice job with the story: nice, but not exceptional. The pictures are dark (depicting pollution) just what you might expect to find in the city. The story starts at the beginning and goes to the end, nothing exceptional here. This is a nice book, if you are looking for a fiction, picture story on pollution and animal survival.
