Praise For In the Belly of an Ox: The Unexpected Photographic Adventures of Richard and Cherry Kearton…
"Bond's watercolors enliven the rolling hills, and paneled illustrations effectively pace the chronology. The story could be tempted to take a humorous turn, focusing on each madcap disguise the brothers thought up, but instead it stays true to the Keartons' sensibilities. A thoughtful look at two important forerunners of nature photography."--Kirkus Reviews
"In the late 19th century, these nature-loving brothers spent their youth navigating the British countryside . . . Bond’s graceful watercolors depict the brothers as they piece together their disguises and gain recognition for their innovative approach to photography. The brothers’ dedication and ingenuity are especially resonant, and their elaborate costumes will amuse but also inspire. "--Publishers Weekly
