About the Author

Aliki is the well-loved author and illustrator of many bestselling books. She lives in London.


With all-new art, substantially changed text, new charts and a new trim size, the revised edition of Aliki's Wild and Woolly Mammoths, first published in 1977, could almost be a brand-new book from the popular picture book author. Its subject, of course, remains the same. Preserved for 39,000 years under snow and ice, the body of a woolly mammoth was discovered in Siberia in 1900. Using information from this site along with more recent archeological findings, scientists have determined when and where these ancestors of the elephant lived‘and how they were hunted by hungry cave dwellers. With concise text and informative art, Aliki illuminates the timeless appeal of these long-gone animals‘and drops a gentle warning about the possible fate of tusked descendants (HarperCollins, $14.95 32p ages 4-8 ISBN 0-06-026276-1 Jan.)

K-Gr 3-This revision of a popular title (1977) provides a fascinating glimpse of woolly mammoths and the cave dwellers who hunted them. The text has been revamped and is more complex than in the earlier edition, with many interesting additions and sidebars reflecting new archaeological discoveries. The book is now geared to a second or third grade reading level, but would still make a fascinating read-aloud for younger children. The format has been enlarged, allowing for a more attractive, less cramped layout. The illustrations are beautifully done in watercolor and pencil and allow the mammoth to appear a realistic, yet almost mythical creature, which suits its extinct status. Overall, a good book has been transformed into an even better one.æMelissa Hudak, North Suburban District Library, Roscoe, IL
