About the Author

Margriet Ruurs is the author of many books for children, including A Mountain Alphabet and When We Go Camping. She has a Masters Degree in Education, and has spent her adult life both writing books for children, and teaching children about books. Margriet has spent a great deal of time hiking and camping in the mountains, and traveling. She has lived across North America, and now makes her home in Alberta.

Andrew Kiss came to Canada from Hungary in 1957. He grew up in Vancouver, teaching himself how to paint while working at sawmills. Andrew paints wildlife and landscapes, and has spent much of his life traveling the world to see his subjects in their native habitats. Andrew Kiss's work has been exhibited across North America and Europe. Wild Babies is his third book with Tundra.

Reviews

"Kiss's illustrations are more than a visual feast...Libraries...should...make room on their shelves for this attractive title."
-School Library Journal "...Andrew Kiss's paintings of each baby animal or bird [are] richly detailed, each painting a master of realism incorporating the creature's habitat as well as -it seems -every fold of skin, or shading of fur."

The Globe and Mail

"...this beautiful book includes...richly coloured meticulously detailed painting[s] depicting wild babies in their habitat. A single line of poetic text accompanies each...illustration... Young children will be delighted with the opportunity to discover secrets hiding in each painting... Although Wild Babies is a perfect book for pre-school and primary children, the power of its simple prose and lush paintings will ensure its appreciation by older children. Libraries...will want to add this handsome and informative book to their collection. Highly Recommended."
