Dad and the Dinosaur Cover

Illustrator Dan Santat

We are delighted to be hosting uber-talented, funnyman Dan Santat as he shares his art with us for Dad and the Dinosaur, and others.  A fun fact:  Once Upon a Time won the prestigious Women's National Book Association Pannell Award in 2015 and received an original piece of art by Mr. Santat himself!!!

Dan Santat is the 2015 Caldecott winning creator of THE ADVENTURES OF BEEKLE,  author/illustrator of Sidekicks and the winner of the Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators for Oh No! (Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World) by Mac Barnett. He has also illustrated over 2 dozen other picture books with his trademark bold, angular style.  Besides illustration, he's  the creator of the Disney animated hit, The Replacements. Dan lives in Southern California with his wife, two kids, and various pets.

This book is SO amazing! A beautifully written scientific and personal memoir that is informative, touching, heart-breaking, and inspiring. Jahren’s descriptions of her life and scientific research into the intricacies of the plant world are as poetic and poignant as it gets. The story weaves through her early upbringing in Minnesota, her education, starting her lab with her lovable and eccentric lab partner Bill. It then follows her finding love, motherhood, and her ground-breaking geobiology research. Reading this is like taking a walk through the forest with a friend. Every word is filled with authenticity and a fervent passion for science and this book makes me proud to be studying to become a scientist. It’s a must read for those interested in the natural world or any human who has ever had feelings. - Linnea
