Comments Off on BOOK REVIEW: “Chizi’s Tale” is the True Story of an Orphaned Black Rhino in Zimbabwe

“Chizi’s Tale: The True Story of an Orphaned Black Rhino” is an eye-opening, real-life children’s story of an orphaned baby rhino who was lucky enough to be taken in by a Zimbabwean conservationist and his family. Chizi was lovingly raised and prepared for release back into the wild by his carers, but in their three years together he proved to be quite a character. Written by a Connecticut high schooler who has spent numerous summers in Africa, the illustrated story is age appropriate and reveals the surprisingly gentle nature of these imposing creatures. With charming illustrations by Zimbabwean artist Jacqui Taylor, the book is an excellent introduction to conservation issues for young readers. As an added bonus, all proceeds from the book go to the  conservation charity Tusk . Read on for the full review.

Food stylist Anna Keville Joyce creates truly spectacular imagery by using everything from crushed-up toast to slivered veggies, creating all manner of textures imaginable. After seeing the pieces she crafted with items that most of us have in our fridges and cupboards, it’s going to be difficult to see groceries as anything other than potential art supplies.
