If you've never seen a lowland tapir, you're not alone. Most of the
people who live near tapir habitat in Brazil's vast Pantanal ("the
Everglades on steroids") haven't seen the elusive snorkel-snouted
mammal, either. In this arresting nonfiction picture book, Sibert
winners Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop join a tapir-finding
expedition led by the Brazilian field scientist Pati Medici.
Aspiring scientists will love the immediate, often humorous "you
are there" descriptions of fieldwork, and gadget lovers will revel
in the high-tech science at play, from microchips to the camera
traps that capture the "soap opera" of tapir life.
