About the Author
Dr. Festus W. Ihwagi grew up on the slopes of Mount Kenya with elephants for his neighbors. Today he is a conservation biologist who works for Save the Elephants.Nic Jones is an illustrator from the North West of England who draws inspiration from the animal world, creating beautiful digital illustrations that evoke the tactile feel of fur and feathers through her use of painterly textures.
"Ihwagi's commentary is insightful, spread in digestible blocks through Jones' painterly illustrations, which are crowded with stately pachyderms...particularly engaging." --KirkusPraise for the Young Zoologist series:
"What makes this series stand out is that the illustrations, bite-sized facts, and clear labels make it easy for the youngest of readers to navigate the text and absorb the information there." -- Booklist "The well-illustrated Young Zoologist series guides readers through the lives and notable features of the spotlighted animals... prepares the young zoologist (aka the reader) for their upcoming adventure in the field, laying out tools necessary for investigating the animal. The bright, semi-realistic artwork could hold these titles on its own, but the easily digestible facts regarding life cycle, behavior, and conservation make the volumes well rounded. Each work is pragmatic in addressing the challenges these creatures face while helping aspiring zoologists learn ways to protect animals and their environments." --Booklist
