    When I was in grad school, a teacher told our workshop that if a published novel is 300 pages, the writer had to generate 1,200 along the way. I... Continue »

Publisher Comments:

Black Rhino and Tickbird want to know why Crocodile is crying. They search the African landscape for other animals who might know the answer. The few they find suggest Crocodile is sad that so many of them face extinction. But when Black Rhino finally asks Crocodile why heandrsquo;s crying, he learns an interesting fact: Crocodile isnandrsquo;t really crying; heandrsquo;s wetting his eyes in the hot, dry sun like all crocodiles do. And Black Rhino learns something else about crocodiles: they can have you for lunch if you donandrsquo;t watch out!

Including a photo of each animal featured in the story along with a description of its current status on the list of endangered species, this picture book is a great educational tool. A share of the proceeds from sales of the book will go to the Shompole Community Trust, a land and animal reserve in Kenya.

Praise for Crocodile's Tears

andquot;Beardandrsquo;s illustrations are breathtakingly beautiful in their simplicity. The rhythm of Beardandrsquo;s writing keeps the reader engaged, and will lend itself to being read aloud easily...this book is a must-have for any andldquo;greenandrdquo; collection.andquot;

Synopsis:

Feast your eyes on these amazing creatures before they disappear.  This stampede of wild animals, from Chinese Alligator to Grevy's Zebra, are so rare, they're all endangered.  David McLiman's bold and playful illustrations transform each letter into a work of art, graphically rendered with animal characteristics.  Scales, horns, even insect wings transform the alphabet into animated life.

 

Once you take this eye-opening safari, you'll never look at letters or animals with the same way again.  A striking work of art and a zoological adventure, Gone Wild is sure to be loved by children and adults alike.

As a Lang. Arts middle school teacher,
I was looking for an ABC book that sparked
my students interest.

Such is the book "Gone Wild" !

The theme is about endangered animals --
and each letter depicts either a critically endangered, endangered, or vulnerable creature, including the St. Helena Earwig.

I give this ABC book a 5-star rating!
