Beavers: The Superpower Field Guide

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Rachel Poliquin

Rachel Poliquin writes about animals, mostly. She has written about taxidermied zebras, heroic sled dogs and 800 000 jars of pickled fish. She particularly likes celebrating unexpected animal heroes — the lumpy, lowly, supposedly boring but quietly extraordinary creatures. She is the author of Beastly Puzzles: A Brain-Boggling Animal Guessing Game and the critically-acclaimed Superpower Field Guide Series for children, including Beavers, Moles, Ostriches, and Eels. Poliquin has a Ph.D. in the history of science and has a background in visual arts, cultural history and natural history. She lives in Vancouver with her husband and three children.
