    Fans of these talented authors illustrators will relish the snippets of their globetrotting adventures shared in this fascinating book Filled with photographs and sketches, the entries are grouped according to location and then follow a chronological order Thus, readers follow this pair to various parts of Africa and then five other continents as they search for rare species or materials for their books Many of the anecdotes are humorous, for instance, their search for privacy when the bathroom facilities are surrounded by wildlife, but others are frightening, for instance, when Betsy takes a bad spill in Thailand Still others are poignant and meditative, and may cause readers to pause and wonder about the changes in the wild world where the Lewins have had the fortune to travel as well as the changes in our own back yards Middle graders may enjoy dipping into the book to learn about the inspiration for some of their books although the narrative never directly states that, and some ...
