Spotlight on Science Writers: Sara Levine

Sara Levine shares the story behind her 2017 award-winning picture book, Tooth by Tooth, in this Spotlight on Science Writers blog post on Science NetLinks.

Read an excerpt below:

The main point of Tooth by Tooth: Comparing Fangs, Tusks, and Chompers is that all mammals have the same types of teeth: incisors, canines, and molars. But the differences in tooth size can tell us a lot about what an animal eats. The variations are interesting and fun to think about, especially when shown on human faces, as T.S. Spookytooth illustrates in the book.
