Whoo-Ku Haiku: A Great Horned Owl Story
WHOOO's Maria Gianferrari? She's a self-proclaimed bird nerd with a special fondness for raptors. Her love affair with birds began in 7th grade science class when her teacher, Mr. Lefebvre, initiated a bird count. While walking her dog, Becca, Maria's always on the look-out for birds, and she loves searching winter tree tops for nests. Maria lives in northern Virginia with her German-scientist husband, German speaking daughter and rescue mutt, Becca. This is her first book with G.P. Putnam's Sons. She's also the author of another bird book, Hawk Rising.
Jonathan D. Voss writes and illustrates stories for children. Growing up, he was never far from a pencil or paint brush, and began working as a portrait artist right out of high school. Jonathan is the author and illustrator of the Hoot & Olive stories Brave Enough For Two and Imagine That. He is also the illustrator of Sally Walker's Winnie: The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie-the-Pooh. Jonathan lives in North Carolina with his wife and two kids
“Vivid and accessible: an illuminating portrait of one of nature’s most iconic birds.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Gianferrari tells this avian story wholly in haiku, introducing children to an easy-to-grasp poetic form, against the appropriately moody naturalistic wash of Voss’s stunning picture, in sepia ink and watercolor.” —The New York Times Book Review
