Rachel Poliquin

British Columbia

Rachel Poliquin writes about animals, mostly. She has written about taxidermied zebras, heroic sled dogs and 800 000 jars of pickled fish. But she particularly likes celebrating unexpected animal heroes — the lowly, lumpy, supposedly boring but quietly extraordinary.   She is the author of Beastly Puzzles: A Brain-Boggling Animal Guessing Game 2019 and the critically-acclaimed Superpower Field Guide Series for children, including Beavers 2018 and Moles 2019. Poliquin has a Ph.D. in the history of science and has a background in visual arts, cultural history and natural history. She lives in Vancouver with her husband and three children.
