About the Author

CAP Saucier is the author of The Lucy Man: The Scientist Who Found the Most Famous Fossil Ever! She is also a freelance artist, illustrator, and writer.


""From the big bang to the formation of planets, this book delightfully weaves together the story of modern astronomy with the life story of how a young African American inner-city kid grew up to be one of the most recognized and influential personalities in all of science." --Henry Ferguson, astronomer, the Space Telescope Science Institute "Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of those rare scientists who is a household name--and for good reason. His larger-than-life personality and passion for unraveling the mysteries of the cosmos compel us to marvel at the world around us. Saucier trains her lens on 'the universe within' the great astrophysicist and popularizer, and the result is as fun as it is educational. From Tyson's boyhood observations of the night sky from the rooftop of his family's New York City apartment to his research into how galaxies form, Saucier charts the meteoric rise of a man who reached for the stars--and caught them." --Kate Wong, Scientific American Praise for The Lucy Man: The Scientist Who Found the Most Famous Fossil Ever! "Engaging and well-illustrated... it will hopefully inspire young readers to become evolutionary biologists and to go out and make their own important discoveries." -Quarterly Review of Biology "This book should give anyone, expert or beginner, a better appreciation of [Johanson] and his work. It would make a fine gift to a young aspiring fossil-hunter and a worthy addition to any school library." -National Center for Science Education Reports "Any youngster showing an interest in such things will be immersed for hours in this book." -Bookviews "This handy little book delves into the basic science of human evolution... Saucier breaks down a difficult subject into an easily digestible format... We expect to see more from this author in the near future." -Sacramento Book Review "This book would be a wonderful supplement for a child who has had both theories removed from the school curriculum. Readers will feel like they were part of that fateful dig and will be able to sense the excitement felt when Lucy was found." -Portland Book Review
