About the Author:

Alain Bergeron is a Quebec writer born September 24, 1957. Before becoming a full-time youth author in the fall or 2005, he was a reporter for twenty years in Victoriaville. The least we can say is that it is a very prolific writer, with over 130 books! He writes for various youth age groups, and publishes between 15 and 20 titles a year.

Samuel Parent, pen name Sampar, was born in 1973 in Victoriaville Quebec. He is a self-taught illustrator and cartoonist. He made his mark in recent years in the publishing world by being a winner of the New York Times top 10 illustrators of the year for 2014 and by being a finalist for the Governor General of Canada 2004 (Youth illustration). He has also been a Mr. Christie's Book Award 2002 finalist Awards, a favourite books Youth Communication-Jeunesse finalist, and a Hackmatack Award finalist in 2003 and 2004.
Sampar's illustrations fascinate and capture the imagination of young and old alike. He is the father of three children and admits: "My dream is to make sure that my children can have something from me when they are old enough to be interested in reading."

From Booklist:

First published in Quebec and now available in English, the Do You Know? series offers bits of information about certain animals spiced up with cartoons in which those animals dress and talk like people. A typical double-page spread includes a line or two of informational text illustrated with one or more colorful digital pictures inspired by the factoids. Speech balloons further the comedy. In the brief main text, the vocabulary can be surprisingly challenging. The emphasis varies from book to book. Spiders highlights spider silk, webs, and predation. The playful illustrations will draw readers to the books, and in theory, the humor may help children absorb and retain the information. In practice, it’s not so simple. The comedy isn’t always closely aligned to the facts, and the jokes can fall flat, perhaps losing something in translation. At other times, the humor seems aimed at adults rather than kids. Still, the concept and the idea of nonfiction in translation are novel enough that larger libraries, at least, may want to give the series a try. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan
