Ottaviani, Jim. Primates: The Fearless Science of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birute Galdikas. First Second, 2013.
As its title indicates, this is a nonfiction graphic novel focusing on the the study of primates and describing the careers of three notable female primatologists. The illustrations are engaging and the information is enlightening. Even though I'm not very interested in primatology, I was interested in reading this particular graphic novel, and I could see this book as a good stepping stone to get students interested in other books in our nonfiction collection.
Recommended for: tweens, middle grade, teens
