What does a little ladybug weigh? A snail? A swan? In her extraordinary picture book Alison Limentani introduces children to a fascinating world of wildlife, weight, numbers, and comparisons. Did you know that five starlings weigh the same as one squirrel–or that three rabbits weigh the same as one fox cub? Kids–and parents, too–will be amazed and amused by every surprising and intriguing page.
Alison Limentani has a degree in Animal Behavior and worked as a zookeeper before training as a veterinary nurse. She is passionate about drawing animals, and sharing her knowledge about them, which led her to complete a Master’s of Art in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art in England. She teaches children’s art classes at London Zoo and creates images using traditional printmaking techniques. Alison lives in Cambridge, England.
