"Animal books were always favorites in our household. While looking at them with my young sons, I read a lot about animal moms . . . but not much about dads. Yet intriguing facts slipped through once in a while (fish fathers that kept their eggs in their mouths? Penguin dads that went two months without eating??), and I decided to investigate. What I found was a whole world of furry, feathery and scaly fathers that do extraordinary things to protect their young. As I watched my husband and sons together, I began to notice many similarities between animal dads and human ones! It was only a hop, skip and jump to finding the "voice" of each animal, and writing from that point of view. Several scientists doing cutting-edge research on animal fathers gave me information. I love the photographs of the animals that my editor at Millbrook Press found, which accompany the nonfiction notes at the end of the book. There's just something about animals . . .
