    THE POOR CAMEL! While most creatures are prized, pampered, or at least tended to (down to the lowly pig!), the camel is our beast of burden, left to thirst, forage, and sleep in the merciless desert. This beautiful, comical picture book is for anyone who has ever thought the “grass is greener”! Award winner Charles Santore does it again!

    Praise for A Stowaway on Noah’s Ark:

    “Santore’s carefully detailed watercolors possess both elegance and power.”—Publishers Weekly

    “Grand, dazzlingly precise animal portraits . . . gorgeous pictures, which are rendered in breathtaking detail—every animal feather and spot. . . .”—Booklist
