Product description

Review

Praise for Feynman - Splendid. --The Miami Herald. Entertaining and informative. --Science. Lovely. --Newsday. Captures the jazzy flow of Feynman's life in its spare lines. --USA Today. These images capture with remarkable sensitivity the essence of Feynman's character. The comic-book picture somehow comes to life and speaks with the voice of the real Feynman. --Freeman Dyson, The New York Review of Books. Praise for Primates: An accessible introduction to Goodall's, Fossey's and Galdikas' lives and work. -- Kirkus Reviews. A graphic format admirably propels this lightly fictionalized group biography. -- The Horn Book. Presented as dedicated, iconoclastic, and profoundly in awe of the creatures around them, Goodall, Fossey, and Galdikas are inspiring figures, and Ottaviani does a first-rate job of dangling enough tantalizing tidbits to pique readers' interest in the topic. -- Booklist. The story of how each of these women loved primates and lived among them to study their behavior is compelling, and might inspire a whole new generation of scientists to follow in their footsteps. -- School Library Journal. This is an inviting introduction that will undoubtedly lure many readers into further investigation of this groundbreaking fieldwork.BCCB --Various

About the Author

Jim Ottaviani has written nonfiction, science-oriented comics since 1997, notably the number one New York Times bestseller, Feynman and Fallout which was nominated for an Ignatz Award. He has worked as a nuclear engineer, caddy, programmer, and reference librarian. Primates is his first collaboration with artist Maris Wicks. He lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Maris Wicks (Primates)lives with fellow primate Joe Quinones and their cat, Biggs, in Somerville, Massachusetts. She has used her opposable thumbs to draw comics for Adhouse Books, Tugboat Press, and Spongebob Comics, and written stories for Image and DC Comics. When she's not making comics, Maris works as a program educator at the New England Aquarium. She is an avid tool user and is particularly fond of bananas.

i bought this for my son's birthday so i only had a quick scan through it before finding a hiding place for it. from what i gathered in my quick scan its pitched at anyone from young teens to adults and documents the trials and tribulations of three leading ape researchers. the drawings are lovely, especially the little orang who is perpetually attached to Birute. Can't wait for my boy's birthday so i can steal it off him and read it properly

I am a primatologist, and can't be more happy about this book. The three stories have a funny touch, which makes the book even better. The illustrations are beautiful. I'm giving this book to my primatologist friends, because it's simply amazing.

The book was delivered well before the promised deadline. It is a funny and heart warming book. It encapsulates the story of science and three brave women succinctly. Very good for a light read or as a first primer on a bigger picture. The illustrations are wonderfully entertaining.
