Artists for Conservation

Kitty Harvill, the illustrator of WISDOM, THE MIDWAY ALBATROSS, has just been named the recipient of the AFC Monthly Conservation Artist Award. The Award is made each month to a member of our group who has demonstrated a combination of artistic excellence and who has made an outstanding contribution to the conservation cause. We hope the extra exposure will put Wisdom’s story in front of even more children. See more of Kitty’s wildlife art at her blog or on her Facebook page.

*STARRED REVIEW in Publisher’s Weekly
Harvill (Up, Up. Up! It’s Apple-Picking Time) contributes carefully detailed and naturalistic illustrations, portraying both the beauty and danger of Wisdom’s aquatic environment (discarded plastic and the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami are among the hazards Wisdom manages to escape). . . .Pattison writes crisply and evocatively, and her closing notes provide a wealth of information for readers interested in Wisdom and her fellow albatrosses.
