Children's book illustrator AMANDA ZIMMERMAN has worked as an art director, science illustrator, and librarian.
To feed her passion for nonfiction children's books, she's spent many hours at natural history, art and science museums delving into the mysteries of dinosaurs, bugs, birds, animals of all shapes and sizes and even those wily ancient humans.
She has worked with curators, biologists and engineers to create illustrations for projects ranging from rain water management to a book on Arabian rock art. Her illustrations have been featured in a variety of scientific journals, a gallery show about seahorses and their kin and the science illustration exhibit Focus on Nature XII at the New York State Museum. Her debut picture book, DIEGO, THE GIANT GALAPAGOS TORTOISE, garnered a starred Kirkus review.
