My picture books include A Grand Old Tree, an IRA/CBC Children's Choice in 2006, and Bow-Wow Wiggle-Waggle, one of Bank Street College of Education's Best Books of 2013.

I invite you to narrate the hilarious, nearly wordless Uh-Oh!; enjoy the 'syncopated soundscape of Bow-Wow Wiggle-Waggle; ponder the life cycle of A Grand Old Tree; and wonder at the amazing journey of Two Little Birds. Enjoy!
