About the Author:

Thomas Kingsley Troupe has written more than thirty children's books. His book Legend of the Werewolf (Picture Window Books, 2011) received a bronze medal for the Moonbeam Children's Book Award. Thomas lives in Woodbury, Minnesota with his wife and two young boys.

From Booklist:

In this adorable entry in the Origami Science Adventures series, paper pup Kitanai learns from a very insightful earthworm named Roger the ins and outs of soil. The mixed-media art adventure begins when Kitanai’s creator leaves him sitting in the garden after chores are done. Cavorting across the topsoil, becoming increasingly filthier by the moment, the little dog disparages the earth beneath him until Roger explains that life on earth depends on healthy soil. The earthworm then breaks down the components of earth while Kitanai learns new terms like humus and bedrock. Some concepts are moderately advanced for the target audience, but the playful tone—including a poop joke or two—should keep readers engaged. As a final parting gift, readers are treated to instructions on how to make their own origami dog. Grades 1-3. --Courtney Jones
