My latest books
I have a new book out that I can't wait for you to read:
MY BROTHER THE DUCK is a warm and funny picture book about Stella Wells. Stella is a fledgling scientist who thinks her new baby brother just might be a duck. So she conducts research to see if this is true with hilarious results. This book is illustrated by Daniel Wiseman and published by Chronicle Books.
My other recent releases are:
REMARKABLY YOU. This book celebrates all the talents, interests and undertakings that make you the person you are. Told in joyful rhyme, it's great for anyone who needs to remember how remarkable they are. And, it's got adorable illustrations from Patrice Barton.
WHEN YOU ARE BRAVE. This books is about finding your inner light and using it to be braver than you think you can. In current terms, it's about mindfulness. In Harry Potter terms, it's about conjuring your own personal patronus. The book is beautifully illustrated by Eliza Wheeler.
BE KIND. What does it mean to be kind? This New York Times bestselling book explores how one small act of kindness can grow and grow until it becomes something greater than ever imagined. The book is illustrated by Jen Hill.
