|About the Book|
John Himmelman is the author and illustrator of more than sixty books for children, including Chickens to the Rescue. He lives in Connecticut with his family.According Johns Facebook page, he has been making up stories and scribbling pictures since I could hold a crayon in my hand. It became my job in 1981, when my first book, Talester the Lizard was published during my last year in college (School of Visual Arts)....It behooves a writer to try and turn what interests them into their work. Ive been fortunate to do that with my love of nature, with books - for adults and children - focusing on different natural history topics.
