About the Author
Leslie Bulion creates award-winning science poetry steeped in hands-on learning experiences, field observations, research, humor, and imagery in a variety of poetic forms. Her illustrated poetry collections invite readers on multi-layered science adventures exploring spiders, birds, sea creatures, insects, amphibians, entire ecosystems, and even human anatomy. Leslie's graduate science background and her years as a school social worker inform both her poetry and her science-infused novels for young readers.

Becca Stadtlander is an illustrator and fine artist. She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art. She has illustrated a number of children's picture books.
Reviews
★ "Stadtlander's thickly colored gouache and pastel art portrays active subjects immersed in their environment, while accompanying captions further educate. . . . Bulion's poetic tour of the islands' specialness simultaneously underscores the importance of preservation and highlights the richness that is Earth's ecology."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

★ "The creators of Serengeti: Plains of Grass (2022) offer here an equally appealing introduction to this Pacific Island group. . . . Stadtlander's lush gouache-and-pastel spreads spotlight these unusual species. . . . this is informative, accessible, and not to be missed."--Booklist, Starred Review

"Bulion's cinematic verse calls up the oceanic and island ongoings with a skillful ease . . . while a delightful variance in tone . . . invites readerly engagement. . . . An easy classroom sell to aspiring writers or ocean enthusiasts."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"An amiable excursion, literary as well as scientific."--Kirkus Reviews
