Welcome! ~ ¡Bienvenidos!

Fall 2016,

Hola amigos,

Over the summer I presented on ¡Olinguito, de la A a la Z! Descubriendo el bosque nublado; Olinguito, from A to Z! Unveiling the Cloud Forest at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. It was the perfect venue for this book! The mammals' store carries a panoply of Olinguito merchandise including the most adorable and soft toy that goes beautifully with the book!

I love to see kids discover the amazing animals and plants showcased in this beautiful book during my school visits. I will be participating in the Virginia Children's Book Festival in October and the National Book Festival in Washington, DC.
Please join me at any of the OLINGUITO events listed on the calendar.

Brand new Spanish and English paperback versions of the beloved Rafi and Rosi books are now available from Lee & Low Books.

Here is a sampling of the 36 books I've written and/or illustrated:
