About the Author:

Jim Arnosky won the Eva L. Gordon Award for his outstanding children's science literature and the Christopher Award for his classic work, Drawing from Nature. As School Library Journal says, "Nobody captures nature's whims and wiles better than Jim Arnosky." There are eleven books in the popular series of Crinkleroot nature guides. Mr. Arnosky lives in South Reygate, Vermont.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3. The wise, funny, and forever endearing Crinkleroot, "explorer and wildlife finder," provides yet another guided tour through nature. In his "old jalopy" with his canoe attached and his benevolent snake in tow, he takes readers through various animal habitats. The trip begins in the wetlands, with a cross-sectioned view and an introduction to many of the species that live there. The difference between a swamp, a bog, and a marsh is clarified. Next comes a visit to a woodland, where a double-page spread invites children to find the 24 animals, including birds, squirrels, bats, and insects. Crinkleroot passes through a farmer's cornfield, the grasslands, and into the drylands to introduce succulent plants and unusual critters such as the roadrunner and the collared lizard. Crammed full of information and delightfully presented with appealing watercolor illustrations, the book provides another extremely useful lesson on nature and appreciating the natural world.?Helen Rosenberg, St. Scholastica High School, Chicago, IL
