Praise for A Passion for Elephants

An NSTA-CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for Students K-12

"Buzzeo's text is . . . enthusiastic and will hold strong readers' interest, especially alongside Berry's vibrant art. The illustrations make use of African motifs--rendered in bold reds, yellows, and greens--and capture the joys and sorrows of Moss' work with the African elephants."--Booklist

"[Buzzeo] introduces a real-life elephant scientist who has combined her passion for studying these big animals with activism around the world for a big cause: banning the sale of ivory."--Kirkus Reviews

"Drives home the message about taking on important, difficult tasks and causes."--Publishers Weekly
