When an imaginative second-grader writes a school report about sea cows, the subject is not happy with her portrayal. Sea Cow--or Manatee, as she prefers to be called--comes to life on the pages of the report and decides to defend herself against unflattering comparisons to set the record straight with fascinating facts about manatees. (Albert Whitman & Co.)
Cassandra Federman is the author/illustrator of the forthcoming picture book This Is a Sea Cow. She was born and raised in Massachusetts, where she spent her childhood reading comic books, playing action figures, drawing superheroes, and participating in all things nerdy (before that became cool). She graduated magna cum laude from Brandeis University and moved to Los Angeles, where she worked in film and television.
