Hoot and Peep
At last - two little owls who live on the rooftops of my dreams get to live for real in my book, Hoot and Peep! Book birthdays are always the best - this one especially so.
It’s a sleepy morning in the cottage, but Beatrix the parrot is wide AWAKE…and she can’t wait to start the day with her friends.

--Publisher's Weekly, *STARRED REVIEW
"Beatrix's irrepressible character stands out as brightly as her green and gold plumage....Young children who share Beatrix's morning hyperactivity, or even just her flexible relationship with the idea of an "indoor voice," will certainly relate…as will, without doubt, their parents. A few hearty squawks and a brisk bit of exercise...what better way to start the day? "
