About Christina Wilsdon
When I was a little kid growing up on Long Island in New York, I decided to write a nonfiction book about all the animals in the entire world when I was about seven years old. Every. Single. Species. I remember it began with the somber line "There are such things as lionesses." I recall it ended several pages later with only about five or so species covered.
Since then, I've written a great deal more about animals, though I still haven't come close to covering all the world's fauna.
I live with my family in the Pacific Northwest, where bald eagles nest in the city and orcas surface just offshore.
My book "For Horse-Crazy Girls Only" grew out of a lifelong fascination with horses and everything equine. I had fun writing it for the horse-crazy girl I remember being, and hope that today's horse-crazy girls will have just as much fun reading it.

Insects that look like leaves, snakes that play dead, fish that fly, and toads with poisonous skin—these creatures are among many that defend themselves in fascinating ways. Animal Defenses presents the wide variety of physical and behavioral adaptations used by animals and insects in their struggle to survive and shows how scientists continue to make new discoveries about the age-old maneuvering between predator and prey.
