Gilles Eduar is a musician and self-taught artist who has lived in many places around the world, including his native Brazil. He now lives in France.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3–On their hunt for a perfect career, a giraffe and a zebra visit a school, publishing company, gas station, construction site, hotel, beach, space center, etc. Each ultra-colorful, detailed spread has monkey employees and other animals as consumers. The naively styled gouache illustrations show animals busily engaged in the types of activities one would expect in their respective work settings. The bottom border on each left-hand page tells where Gigi and Zachary are, while the border on the right lists items within the art that readers should look for. Although the pictures have a less sophisticated appearance than the photos in the "I Spy" series (Scholastic), the objects to find are more complex and harder to identify. Even third graders will probably need an explanation of an editorial department and a copywriter before they can look for them. This book does, however, provide a good opportunity for parents to introduce youngsters to various careers. A fun and thought-provoking book, but not an essential purchase.–Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ
