I used to love going with my Mom to the library.
There were a lot of great children's books published when I was a kid, and it soon became clear that my ambition was to walk in the footsteps of my heroes; Bill Peet, Dr. Seuss, Anthony Browne, Chris Van Allsburg, amongst many many illustrators and authors, who took us on adventures and let the imagination of the reader soar.

The New Kid
There was dead silence as the principal, Mr. Guana, showed the new kid into Mrs. Ouran's class. Pencils dropped, the students in the back row stopped throwing paperdactyls. A hadrosaur's cycad gum fell out of her mouth and she didn't even notice. What was a Tyrannosaurus doing at Pangaea Herbivore School?
This book addresses the issue of coming to a new school and being different. It's about a docile t-rex whose family is pescetarian, thus he is enrolled at Pangaea instead of the Jastus Carnivore College on the other side of town. He gets taunted and beaten up by all the bullies of the school, especially during sport and recess. However, he finds he is not the only outcast in his class, and befriends a struthiomimus named Egg. When they discover that their shifty principal is plotting to merge with Jastus College, the pair has to figure out how to expose the truth and stop the carnivores from getting their claws on their school.
Written by Christine Wilson
Toast was just a lost, frightened kitten when he came to live
with the Wilsons. But they loved him and he soon began to
show his colours; an impressive feat for a black and white cat.
Toast is a collaboration with my former French teacher, Christine
Wilson, and is a fun little story based on the real-life quirks of her cat.
