As a National Geographic nature writer, memoirist, and novelist, it is such a pleasure to now also publish children’s books with such master illustrators as Wendell Minor and Ed Young. Creating books for kids gives me so much hope for the future and lets me leapfrog ahead of these turbulent times to help all our next generations—human and animals.
Wendell Minor has illustrated dozens of picture books, and his work has won countless awards and is in permanent collections of such institutions as the Museum of American Illustration and the Library of Congress. His cover illustrations have graced some of the most significant novels of our time by authors such as Toni Morrison, David McCullough, and James Michener. He lives in Washington, Connecticut.
