Above the Ground, Under the Ground

This picture book illustrates a beetle’s observation of the ecological world, which includes hundreds of other creatures and their life spans. The author urges readers to think about the correlation between the meaning and the length of life. The author shows us that leading a splendid and meaningful life is more important than having a long one.

地面地下

《地面地下》雖然以獨角仙為主角,此書欲描繪的卻不只是牠的一生,更是以其生存棲息的生態時間軸,對比構樹、黑棘蟻、推糞金龜等各種生物的生命週期,促使讀者思考生命的意義與自然時序長短的關聯,是一本以獨角仙微觀生態世界,宏觀萬物生命的圖畫書。

作者簡介

邱承宗

一九五四年出生。於日本東京攝影專門學校畢業,回臺後創辦「紅蕃茄」出版社,並開始創作以本土素材為主的兒童繪本,作品獲得國內各書獎,包括最佳兒童圖書類圖書金鼎推薦獎及最佳兒童及少年科學類圖書金鼎獎、豐子愷圖畫書獎佳作、年度最佳少年兒童圖書創作類獎及知識創作類獎、中時開卷版年度兒童十大好書獎、第一屆綠芽獎佳作,二○○○年與二○○六年更入選義大利波隆納國際插畫展非文學類。
此外,作品曾經流浪到「德國慕尼黑國立動物學收藏館」聯展、「德國慕尼黑紐倫堡動物園教育館」個展、「德國慕尼黑市立植物園」個展、「德國漢堡生物學博物館個展」,可是人卻沒去過德國。
創作、設計之路幾經波折,進入四十不惑之年,開始篤定的以畫與話述說生命與自然,至今創作不斷。雖年過半百,仍然像個孩童似的對昆蟲世界充滿好奇。他自認:「生命的過程,因不懂人性,而對人類有畏懼感。雖然是活了一甲子的老怪物,依舊喜歡優游大自然與昆蟲為伍。」
個人創作有《光腳丫的爸爸》、《獨角仙》、《蝴蝶》、《昆蟲飼養》、《昆蟲家族》、《大洞洞小洞洞》、《我們的森林》、《啊!蜻蜓》、《我們去釣魚》和《你睡著了嗎?》(小魯出版)等。
