The Great Minds series introduces young children to the greatest scientists of all time. First up: Alexander von Humboldt, the father of the climate movement. For researchers ages 9 years and up.

Young Alexander von Humboldt's pockets are always full of treasures from the forest: stones, insects, plants, and fossils. In the second half of the nineteenth century, he grows up to become a science-adventurer and climate genius. His expeditions take him all over the world and lead to many new discoveries.

Peter Nys is a Belgian author. Conz (1977) always wanted to be a cartoonist and so he did. After his studies at the Sint-Lucas Academy in Brussels and a series of publications in the comic magazine's Demo and Ink, he debuted in 2004 with the award-winning semi-autobiographical collection When I was the Leader of the World. Recently, Conz mainly focuses on illustrations and cartoons, but with the Suske and Wiske homage Boomerang (with drawings by Steven Dupr ), he returned to the comic world. Although now as a scriptwriter. In addition to his drawing activities, Conz teaches part-time at the art academy.
