* "A powerful story of following one's dreams and passions, despite life's challenges." —School Library Journal, starred review
Rhoda loves spending time with Toppy. He is not only her beloved grandpa, but also the world-famous wildlife artist Charles R. Knight! Every outing with Toppy — from visits to the American Museum of Natural History and the Central Park Zoo to tea parties at The Plaza Hotel — is filled with fun and adventure.
Lovers of animals, art, natural history, and New York City will relish this vivacious and winsomely depicted true story. Presented through Rhoda's eyes, it celebrates the enchantment of scientific inquiry, a tender grandparent-grandchild bond, and the vision of a pioneering artist who opened our eyes to the wonders of the ancient world.
Included in this book are dozens of Charles R. Knight's original paintings and drawings, interspersed with Matte Stephens's winsome illustrations.
