Tigers & Tea with Toppy: A True Adventure in New York City with Wildlife Artist Charles R. Knight, Who Loved Saber-Toothed Cats, Parties at the Plaza, and People and Animals of All Stripes

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Matte Stephens. This appealing fictionalized biography introduces American wildlife artist Charles R. Knight from his young granddaughter Rhoda's perspective. They meet at the American Museum of Natural History to view his work--some of the first paintings, based only on fossil remains, to depict prehistoric animals--then visit the Central Park Zoo and have tea at the Plaza Hotel. Stephens's playful, quirky gouache illustrations incorporate some of Knight's actual art. Bib.
