About the Author

Melissa Stewart is the award-winning author of more than 150 science books for children, including the celebrated Can An Aardvark Bark?, illustrated by Steve Jenkins. After earning a bachelor's degree in biology from Union College in Schenectady, New York, and a master's degree in science journalism from New York University, Melissa worked as a children's book editor for nine years before becoming a full-time writer in 2000. While gathering information for her books, she has explored tropical rain forests in Costa Rica, gone on safari in East Africa, and swum with sea lions in the Galapagos Islands. She lives in Acton, Massachusetts.
Stephanie Laberis is a freelance illustrator and character designer for animation. Originally from New England, she now lives in Northern California with her wonderful partner, a couple of felines, and a handful of rodents. Her love for art is rivaled only by her love for animals, and she spends her spare time as a volunteer wildlife rehabber. She loves painting, needle felting, and losing herself in a good video game.

Reviews

"The point that every animal, no matter how seemingly weak, has 'its own special way of surviving' is effectively made. The narrative also offers discussion-encouraging questions, and the lively painted portraits depict the animals fairly realistically, placing them in simplified natural settings, sometimes with a humorous touch."
"Friendly and approachable, this compendium is sure to create some new favorites in the animal kingdom."
