    Fans of these talented authors/illustrators will relish the snippets of their globetrotting adventures shared in this fascinating book. Filled with photographs and sketches, the entries are grouped according to location and then follow a chronological order. Thus, readers follow this pair to various parts of Africa and then five other continents as they search for rare species or materials for their books. Many of the anecdotes are humorous, for instance, their search for privacy when the bathro [...]

    Lovely short snippets of adventures and experiences from a lifetime of travel to some of the most exotic animal-related places in the world. I loved Betsy's fabulous sketches and paintings and also the photographs that were included. Wonderful book design and layout made this a real pleasure.

    bookaday #85. Fascinating and incredible collection of anecdotes, photos, and drawings for 30 years of worldwide travel by author/artist couple. Most interesting and sad were the comments on Africa after returning 20+ years later and how much it has changed due to civil unrest and war.

    Betsy and Ted Lewin have spent decades traveling across the globe to witness amazing things. They have seen rare natural phenomena, a variety of wild animals, and the fascinating rituals and daily lives of many different people. Here they share some of their favorite short anecdotes of their experiences. In Botswana, Ted was trapped in a bathroom hut by a lumbering hippo. In Mongolia, in the middle of the night, Betsy found a cane rat desperately trying to open their toothpaste tube. In Nevada, [...]

    This book reads like someone's journale it is. Ted and Betsy Lewin have had the opportunity and courage to travel the world. They aren't tourists, but "students" of the places they visit. The book is divided into world areas, with small chapters focusing on the places they've been in each area. The Lewins have definitely had some amazing adventures: traveling through Uganda during war; having a hippo stand outside their loo; riding a sledge pulled by reindeer miles above the Arctic Circle; and m [...]

    Ted and Betsy Lewin, authors of over 200 books have traveled the world together since the 1970s. This book is full of short vignettes and stories about their many experiences with people, animals and places all over the globe. From the african jungles to the mongolian desert, we learn about interesting animals, giant bugs, the best way to eat something gross, what is making that strange noise, how to get your driver to stop for a drink of water when he doesn’t speak your language, where giant [...]

    While not really a book to read straight through (at least I couldn't), these collections of short vignettes about their world travels may appeal to kids who long to explore and learn about the world around them. The entries jump around in time and place and it was difficult for me to find a cohesive narrative, although many of the vignettes have a dry humor. Classroom teachers looking for short nonfiction or memoir passages may find useful items here.

    This travelogue from the Lewins is highly browsable, and a great pick for tweens who love a) animals or b) the idea of seeing the world. Each section is just one or two pages long, with photos and illustrations throughout, making it ideal for kid nonfiction fans who favor reading in short bursts, rather than long sittings.

    Very interesting, but more andecdotal.

    Debby Baumgartner
    Betsy and Ted Lewin, children's authors share stories from their travels throughout the world.

    I was drawn in by their sense of adventure and wonder in each of the places they visited and all the animals they saw (and sometimes got too close to!). Absolutely beautiful illustrations.
