Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This book grew out of an itch I've always had to see the world, an itch I started scratching some thirty years ago. Since then my wife, Betsy, and I have traveled to Australia, India, Nepal, Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Morocco, Egypt, Brazil, Ecuador, the Galdpagos Islands, the Caribbean, Ireland, England, France, Germany, Italy, Lapland, Canada, the western United States, Alaska, the Pribilof Islands, and Baja, Mexico. These travels have provided the inspiration for many of my picture books, but often some of my most memorable travel moments -- my brief acquaintances with people along the way -- don't fit into a thirty-two-page picture book story. Here, then, are some of those people, people who have touched me briefly but powerfully before I've had to move on."From the old man who takes in orphaned animals in the middle of the Amazon rain forest to the director of a polar bear jail in Manitoba to the Nepalese holy boy seated silently amidst flowers and incense, these portraits of people the world around will sometimes make you laugh, sometimes pull at your heartstrings, and always fill you with the itch to travel.

Inhaltsangabe: "This book grew out of an itch I've always had to see the world, an itch I started scratching some thirty years ago. Since then my wife, Betsy, and I have traveled to Australia, India, Nepal, Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Morocco, Egypt, Brazil, Ecuador, the Galdpagos Islands, the Caribbean, Ireland, England, France, Germany, Italy, Lapland, Canada, the western United States, Alaska, the Pribilof Islands, and Baja, Mexico. These travels have provided the inspiration for many of my picture books, but often some of my most memorable travel moments -- my brief acquaintances with people along the way -- don't fit into a thirty-two-page picture book story. Here, then, are some of those people, people who have touched me briefly but powerfully before I've had to move on."

From the old man who takes in orphaned animals in the middle of the Amazon rain forest to the director of a polar bear jail in Manitoba to the Nepalese holy boy seated silently amidst flowers and incense, these portraits of people the world around will sometimes make you laugh, sometimes pull at your heartstrings, and always fill you with the itch to travel. As Kirkus Reviews puts it, "Lewin's prodigious talent is to make readers feel that they've been therebetter yet, that they must go there."

"I don't know when I'm happiest," says Ted Lewin, "traveling, or at home in my studio reliving it all in my paintings." Ted is the illustrator of some thirty-one picture books, twelve of which he also wrote. Among them are Peppe the Lamplighter, by Elisa Bartone, which won him a 1994 Caldecott Honor Award, and Market!, which was named a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year, a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, and a Smithsonian Magazine Notable Book. He is also the author of the acclaimed, autobiographical I Was a Teenage Professional Wrestler.

Über den Autor:

Ted Lewin grew up in an old frame house in Buffalo, New York, with two brothers, one sister, two parents, a lion, an iguana, a chimpanzee, and an assortment of more conventional pets. The lion was given to his older brother, Don, while he was traveling as a professional wrestler, and he shipped it home. The family kept Sheba in the basement fruit cellar until Don returned and their mother convinced him to give it to the Buffalo zoo.

Ted always knew he wanted to be an illustrator. As a child he copied the work of illustrators and painters he admired, including N. C. Wyeth, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Velázquez, and Goya. When it came time to go to art school (Pratt), he needed to earn money to finance his education. So, following in his brother’s footsteps, he took a summer job as a wrestler -- the beginning of a 15-year part-time career that eventually inspired his autobiographical book I Was a Teenage Professional Wrestler. Ted’s career as an artist began with illustrations for adventure magazines, and it’s only over the last several years that he has devoted his time to writing and illustrating children’s books. "I’m having more fun doing this than anything I’ve ever done before," he says. He is an avid traveler, and many of his books are inspired by trips to such places as the Amazon River, the Sahara Desert, Botswana, Egypt, Lapland, and India. His Market!, published in 1996, showcases markets around the world, from Uganda to Ireland to Ecuador.

Touch and Go is a collection of stories about the adventures Ted had while researching his books. Gorilla Walk is his first collaboration with his wife, Betsy, and is about their trek to see the mountain gorillas in Uganda. They’ve just completed their second collaboration, Elephant Quest, set in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. Ted’s current project is about a Civil War drummer boy.

Ted and Betsy live in Brooklyn, New York, where they share their home with two cats, Slick and Chopper.
