"Dee and the Mammoth"
by Gene Gagliano, illustrated by Zak Pullen.
"Dee and the Mammoth" is a children's book written by Gene Gagliano of Buffalo, WY, and illustrated by Zak Pullen of Casper. It is inspired by the discovery of Dee the Mammoth, but in this story, Dee is a little girl who tells a story about a mammoth through letters from her dad who is working on a mammoth dig. The book also includes a DVD which features an audio version of the book, and a documentary film about the Tate Museum's Dee the Mammoth.
