About Doris Thomas

Doris Thomas setzt sich seit mehr als zwei Jahrzehnten für den Schutz der Wale und gegen Delfinarien ein. Sie hat bereits viele Bücher geschrieben und selbst illustriert. Besonders bekannt sind ihre fünf Bände über die Abenteuer von Zabu, den Schwertwal, in dem sie den Kindern in spannenden Geschichten viele Walarten näher bringt. Aber auch Umweltthemen spielen immer eine Rolle. Die Autorin arbeitet jedoch nie mit einem erhobenen Zeigefinger, sondern lässt ihre Geschichten wirken. So nähern sich Kinder den Themen auf unterhaltsame Weise, was sie letztendlich mehr prägt und beeindruckt als nüchterne Fakten. Inspiriert wird die Autorin durch ihre Reisen auf die Azoren, wo sie die Meeressäuger in freier Wildbahn beobachtet. Zusätzlich zu ihren Büchern gestaltet Doris Thomas auch Foto- und Kunstkalender, sowie Motive für Shirts und vieles mehr. (Redbubble, Spreadshirt) ___ For more than 20 years Doris Thomas is working for the protection of whales and against dolphinariums. She already wrote several books and illustrated them by herself. Best known are her 5 children's books about the orca Zabu. With exciting stories she entertains and submits a lot of facts about different species. But the environment is an important theme always too. She has found a way to tell her stories so that they teach and touch the reade. The author gets a lot of her inspirations during her journeys to the Azores where she observes the marine mammals in their natural habitat, wild and free. In addition to her books she designs photo- and artcalendars and motives for shirts and other items. (Redbubble, Spreadshirt)
