Reviews

School Library Journal - Carol S. Surges, formerly at Longfellow Middle School, Wauwatosa, WI

"These picture books retell the stories of famous animals. Sgt. Reckless and Stubby were war heroes, while Laika was the first creature to be sent into outer space, and Scarlett rescued her kittens from a burning building. . . .Larger libraries or those in need of more titles on heroic animals may find this series of use." - School Library Journal

Jeni Wittrock

Since she was little, Jeni Wittrock has loved reading, writing, and animals. In 2005, after earning her MFA in creative writing, Jeni began writing and editing children’s books for Capstone Press. Her interests include natural history, biology, science, and pet care, so it’s no wonder that she often writes books about those topics. Jeni shares her Minneapolis home with her beloved furry family members—cats, rabbits, tarantulas, and many other misfit pets. In her spare time, she volunteers for a local rabbit rescue and adoption agency.
