Rebecca L. Johnson has brought science to life in dozens of national award-winning books for children and young adults, including Zombie Makers: True Stories of Nature’s Undead (ALA Notable, Junior Library Guild Selection, Junior Library Guild Top Pick, Kirkus Best Children’s Books). Her books highlight why science is such an exciting endeavor: there is no shortage of new species, remarkable adaptations, and fresh insights into life on earth. She has been fortunate to work with many scientists in far-flung corners of the planet and bases much of her writing on personal experience. "Through my books, I hope to show young people that the world is full of wonders, and that science is the path that leads to them."

Appeal Characteristics: zombie bugs, visualizations, layout, information structureOMG. I threw up a bit in my mouth.
