Charlotte Guillain worked as a bookseller, an English teacher and an editor before becoming an author. She has written more than 100 books, both fiction and non-fiction. She always wanted to be a writer and her top tip is to read as much as you can.
Gr 3-5-A cartoon pet welcomes readers to each book, introducing it as a family album, and then helps presents facts on different pet breeds and their wild relatives. Students will learn how the animals grow, what they eat, and how their own pets are similar to creatures they may only have seen at the zoo. Information on how to care for pets is minimal. Kids will enjoy taking the quiz at the end of each title to see which breed they would be. True to the "family album" concept, the visually-appealing layout is much like a scrapbook with text boxes, color photos, and captions appearing to be taped, paper clipped, or otherwise fastened to the pages. Readers will want to pick these up for pleasure reading as well as research. Marshall Cavendish's "Great Pets" series (2007) has similar information presented in a more standard narrative format, while Smart Apple's "Pets Plus" (2012) has a greater focus on caring for pets.
