About the Author
Cesar Samaniego was born in Barcelona on 1975. He grew up with an artist father, smelling his father's oils, reading his comic books, and trying to paint over his father's illustrations! He attended Llotja Arts and Crafts School and graduated with honors in 2010. Since then he has published many books and provided art for apps, textbooks, and animations. Cesar lives in Canet de Mar, a small town on the coast of Barcelona, with his wife, daughter, five cats, and a crazy dog.
A true story about a man, his baboon service animal, and their great friendship; a fascinating look at the inner workings of railway depots in the 1800s; content-rich narrative nonfiction for upper elementary readers; inspiring story of problem-solving and living with a disability; lots of backmatter with photos and additional info on the story, the history of service animals, and baboons; strong industry sales for books about service animals (e.g., Tuesday Tucks Me In and Rescue and Jessica); no other picture books on the market about this true story.
