He currently lives with his family in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. While researching Rhino in the House, he visited Lewa Downs Conservancy in Kenya where he went on a photo safari, saw Anna Merz's home, and interviewed those who had known her and who are carrying on her work.


"A solid introduction to wildlife conservation...Samia saves the story, offering great appeal for young readers and moving the lively narrative along with her antics."--Kirkus Reviews
"This straightforward description of a wild animal's rescue stands out for the specificity of its setting, made clear to young readers with maps of the world and of Africa with all its countries... A pleasant addition to storytimes about animal rescue and rehabilitation."--School Library Journal

"This wonderfully illustrated, charming true story is another great book for introducing environmental issues and some of the joys and challenges they engender."

--School Library Connection
"Kirk's full-color, playful illustrations render the amiable rhino with cute features, and the savannah scenes are rich with lively detail...A playful glimpse into the life of a conservationist."--Booklist
