About Rosemary Mosco

Rosemary Mosco blends science, humor, and heart to create books and comics about wildlife. According to BirdWatching Magazine, “She is the rare humorist who understands nature and biology well enough to make even the most cranky birder crack a smile.” Her Bird and Moon comics are collected in the book Birding Is My Favorite Video Game, a 2019 ALA Great Graphic Novel for Teens, and have appeared in publications ranging from the scientific journal Nature Ecology & Evolution to the children’s magazine Ranger Rick.
