Based on a true story, Rosie the Tarantula: A True Adventure in Chicago's Field Museum is a beautifully illustrated introduction to the Field Museum's treasures through the eyes of Rosie, a member of the Museum's live arachnid collection.
Several years ago, Rosie went on an expedition to the wonders of the Field's soaring halls, such as SUE the T. rex, as well as the secret specimens of animal fossils and human artifacts hidden away in drawers, cabinets, and bins. Renowned Field Museum artist-in-residence Peggy Macnamara brings the marvels of the museum to vivid life in a set of gorgeous and meticulously accurate watercolors. Peggy's daughter Katie narrates the story of this restless arachnid in rhyme ideal for reading aloud to children.
A keepsake quality book that will delight budding young scientists and their families, Rosie the Tarantula provides a colorful, interactive experience with one of Chicago's foremost cultural institutions. This one-of-a-kind book is rounded out by fascinating notes for adult readers, and other fun features for further reading.
