A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Jim Ottaviani returns with an action-packed account of the three greatest primatologists of the last century: Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas. These three ground-breaking researchers were all students of the great Louis Leakey, and each made profound contributions to primatology--and to our own understanding of ourselves.
Tackling Goodall, Fossey, and Galdikas in turn, and covering the highlights of their respective careers, Primates is an accessible, entertaining, and informative look at the field of primatology and at the lives of three of the most remarkable women scientists of the twentieth century. Thanks to the charming and inviting illustrations by Maris Wicks, this is a nonfiction graphic novel with broad appeal.

The true tale of three pioneering researchers and their contributions to our understanding of the natural world. Good for budding primatologists, nature lovers, girl-power story seekers, and kids with a biography assignment due in three days.

That's the kind of art I like in graphic novels, it reminded me of Raina Telgemeier for some reason. I'd known the story of Jane Goodall, but it was nice to learn about the two other normal-women-turned-scientists. It's a short summary on their experiences with the primates in different parts of Africa and Asia.
