Jean-Henri Fabre loved to study bugs as a boy. He grew up poor in the south of France, gained a teaching certificate at age 19, and went on to become a physicist, chemist and botanist.

Frank E. Schoonover (1877-1972) was one of the most important American illustrators of his time. In more than 40 years he created more than 2200 illustrations which were published in popular periodicals like Harpers, Scribner's, and Colliers, and in over 150 books, particularly children's classics and fiction by authors as Jack London or Edgar Rice Burroughs. His images of Hopalong Cassidy, Blackbeard, Jim Bridger, Robinson Crusoe, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Joan of Arc remain a testimony of his artistic ability.
