“Great! As a teacher that is working on a unit on animal adaptions (sic) this is a must…The text is easy to read for my 2nd graders, but still higher level thinking. I would recommend this for all!” A. Little

I trained as a zoologist and zookeeper, and have been a children’s book author and presenter for over twenty years. Why do I write? Because it’s fun! What do I write about? Mostly my main interests – animals and the environment.
