ABOUT ALAN HESSE
Based in biodiversity-rich Ecuador, Alan wears several hats: he is an author-illustrator, an educator, and a conservation biologist. Alan's work is inspired by the majesty and fragility of nature and the need to do everything we can to protect it. Alan combines his artistic creativity with his technical experience and knowledge to create scientifically accurate, educational children's books full of quirky, comic humour and fun action, and usually bearing a message about how everyone can help preserve Nature.
Because he combines non-fiction with fiction, Alan's creative process involves multiple steps that all need careful planning, right from researching the technical content of his books to creating the storyline, the original artwork, characters, and dialogues to designing the final books. Alan is the author of five educational comic books for middle-grade children, among which his main ongoing focus is the Captain Polo series about climate change. All five books have received 5-star reviews from Readers Favorite. Alan is also the author of 2 climate change-themed picture books and one Christmas activity book for children within the 6-8 age range.
