My latest book:

I've got feet! and friend"I've Got Eyes!: Exceptional Eyes of the Animal World"  Illustrated by Hannah Tolson. Amicus Ink, USA

"This book will amaze and intrigue readers as they pore over the pages, delighting in discovering why animal eyes are so different, whilst pondering the question – What can our eyes do?"

Mrs. Brooks, Teacher/librarian, QLD - Wild About Books (Oct 5, 2018)

From bulging eyes to hiding eyes, handlebar eyes to double-decker eyes, young readers K-3 will learn about animal adaptations and the diversity of the animal world in this beautifully illustrated nonfiction picture book.
