About the Author

Conrad J. Storad grew up in Barberton, Ohio. He didn't see his first armadillo up close until 1982, when he drove across Texas on his way to begin graduate school at Arizona State University. Currently, Storad is the editor of the national award-winning ASU Research Magazine, and is the founding editor of Chain Reaction a science magazine for young readers. He is also the author of Don't Call Me Pig! A Javelina Story and Lizards for Lunch, A Roadrunner's Tale as well as the creator of a number of science and nature books for children.

Recently, the Arizona Library Association and Libraries, Ltd., honored Storad with the Judy Goddard Award as their Children's Author of the Year. When he's not working, Conrad enjoys hiking and exploring the wilds of the Southwest with his wife Laurie.

Nathaniel P. Jensen grew up in Austin, Texas, attending the Pflugerville Schools and obtaining a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin. Since 1990 he has been a working artist in Austin, where as a public artist he has painted murals as tall as 60 feet; as an illustrator he has created award-winning graphic illustrations for national, state and city publications; as a painter he has exhibited in venues large and small throughout the city; and as an art activist he has worked passionately to bring Austin arts to the forefront of community consciousness. This is his first book for children.

Format: Hardcover
This is a sweet story you won't mind sharing with your child again and again. The illustrations are first rate, each page has its own color palate as the story progresses from evening to dawn (armadillos are nocturnal, after all!). My three year old has a new best friend!

The publishers also did a great job on the printing. The images are crisp, the paper is of good quality so that the colors jump out at you.

Good for kids or adults who are collectors of picture books.

This book by the author of "Don't Call Me Pig! A Javelina Story" and "Lizards for Lunch. A Roadrunner's Tale" is a wonderful blend of whimsical rhyme and natural history lesson. Young readers (or listeners) will love following the antics of a red-capped armadillo student as his teacher armadillo lectures the a restless armadillo class all about their history, biology, habitat, and most importantly the dangers of crossing the road! Bringing the words to life are Nathaniel Jensen's delightful illustrations--the expressions on the little armadillos faces are priceless.

Not only is this delightful book instructional but it is also great fun for both children and adults. Kids really respond to the illustrations which animate the story. Definitely a keeper -- one you will want to read and look at over and over.

This is a very important lesson for any growing Armadillo! Without this book I would be dead in the middle of the road like my ancestors! If you ever want to travel the middle of the road in any subject this book is for you! All Armadillos should read it! VERY IMPORTANT!
