Synopsis

Chomp! Munch! Chew! by Karen Wallace

Wonderwise is a well-written, beautifully illustrated series designed to introduce children to key topics and concepts in an entertaining and unusual way. Chomp! Munch! Chew! is a natural history book with a difference. With simple text that has a straightforward narrative and lively captions, this book looks at all the ways that animals eat - those that chomp grass, others that munch leaves and the scary ones that chew on bones! Karen Wallace is an ward-winning children's author of fiction and non-fiction, as well as a successful scriptwriter. She has written several Wonderwise titles and contributed to the Sparks and most recently the popular Hopscotch series for Franklin Watts, as well writing books for Puffin and Walker. She lives in Herefordshire.

About the Author

Karen Wallace

I was born in Canada and grew up in a log cabin in Quebec. My childhood was spent playing in the forests and messing about on the Gatineau River. It was a wonderful wild time and in many ways is the source of all of my writing. Children's writers are an eccentric bunch. Someone once said they never grow up and in many ways, this is probably true in my case.
I write books for children from five to fifteen years old. The ability to recall how you felt and what your world was like at a particular point in your childhood is something that all children's writers share. It's like pushing a rewind switch and going back in time. Many of my natural history books for children, like THINK OF AN EEL, which won awards on both sides of the Atlantic, IMAGINE YOU ARE A TIGER, or I AM A TYRANNOSAURUS REX all reflect my own sense of wonder exploring the woods and the river around me when I was a child. Years later, I wrote about this childhood in my first novel RASPBERRIES ON THE YANGTZE, which was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Prize.
