About the Author
Rebecca L. Johnson has written dozens of national award-winning books that highlight why science is such an exciting endeavor: there are no shortages of new species, remarkable adaptations, and fresh insights into life on earth. She believes that scientists have the world's best jobs, and has been fortunate to work with many of them in far-flung corners of the planet, including Antarctica’s frozen interior and the ocean's abyss.
"Through my writing, I hope to show young people that the world is full of wonders, and that science is the path that leads to them."
