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.

Flight School in France

It's so much fun to see Flight School heading out into the big wide world. I love the thought of kids in many different countries reading a story I was lucky enough to create. And now I can practice my french!

A Star for Beatrix

Beatrix and her book Good Morning to Me! got a starred review from Publishers Weekly! The link is here. We're all eager for the book to be out on May 5th!



Coming in May 2015 -- Good Morning to Me!

 Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2015

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.

  • "...a lead character whose energetic, blissfully obtuse personality is as vivid as her bright green feathers...It’s easy to imagine the many warm, giggling interchanges that snuggling with this book will inspire."
    --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? "

Red Sled

RED SLED has just been included on the Common Sense Media list of essential books for kids and teens!


It joins some pretty good company in the age 2-6 category!




Thank you BookPage for including Flight School in your best of the 2014 list! What an honor to be in such company.



Taking Shape

Seeing a book begin to take shape after over a year of sketching and revising is exciting!



The Corner on Character

FLIGHT SCHOOL was recently mentioned in Barbara Gruener's lovely blog, The Corner on Character, and has been included in this year's Character Case at her school in Friendswood, Texas. Here's a link to the article.


Here's a small section from the article:

As we head into this year's dash, don't our little birds deserve to see their potential as eagles, not their limitations as penguins? We must take our role as flight instructors to assist and support them with "the technical parts" seriously.


Born in the Wild

I'm so hopeful for my next book (out this fall)- two reviews are in and both are STARRED. Thank you School Library Journal and Kirkus!!
