Jonathan London is the creator of twenty-three books about lovable and enduringly popular Froggy. He is also a poet and a novelist. Jonathan and his wife live in Graton, California.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 4?Breathtaking paintings and a dramatic text make this wildlife adventure a real stand-out. Two red wolves move silently through their coastal wetlands habitat. They stalk a small animal across a frozen marsh, only to be startled by a fearless skunk. There is danger everywhere: a barking dog in a quiet house, a nervous farmer and his rifle, a pair of alligators searching the river for food. Finally, the mates find safety high in the hills, far from civilization. As the weather warms, they settle into a comfortable den, and with spring comes a litter of pups. London's staccato text moves the action along at a swift pace. The third-person narrative describes the events in simple, effective language, allowing the silent wolves to retain an aura of mystery and dignity. As the story unfolds, readers are pulled into their powerful struggle for survival. San Souci's striking watercolors capture the beauty of these shimmering animals and the splendor of their habitat. Posed against a twilight sky, running across a snow-covered landscape, or chasing a butterfly in a blooming meadow, they are portrayed with lifelike detail and vitality. An afterword describes their extinction in the wild and the successful release of captivity-bred red wolves in the southeastern United States. A stunning success.?Joy Fleishhacker, New York Public Library
