New Books!

When I got home from walking my dog this morning, there was a big brown courier box on my doorstep. It was full of new books! What a thrill!

Above are the first 4 titles in the new Who Lives Here? series. This series takes a playful look at how animals' bodies and habits are suited to the place where they live. The books, charmingly illustrated by the talented Pat Stephens, are designed for children 4-6 years of age.

The other 2 covers are for the new Looking At... series — adapted versions of my wildlife books for beginning readers.

An enormous thank you to my editors, Sheila Barry, Lisa Tedesco, Stacey Roderick and Samantha Swenson for their wise counsel and hard work of the past couple of years. Thanks also to Karen Boersma, publisher at Kids Can Press, for making the books possible.

For more information on these titles, please check my website.

Time to celebrate!

Thanks so much, Karen. I'm quite thrilled. It's the culmination of a few years of work, and it's good to see the final product.

Ooooh... my four-year-old is going to love the Who Lives Here? books. Especially the rain forest one... she's a little Dora the Explorer influenced.
