Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You
Grumpy The Iguana and The Green Parrot live in Flamingo park in Miami Beach where they share a tree together and are BFFs. One day they wake up to a scorching hot day. The heat is stifling and there is no breeze to be found. Oh my!
They notice that their friend Mr. Squirrel is straining to uncover something from underneath the bleachers. The two hurry over to see if they can be of help to him. Finally they have victory and Mr. Squirrel takes his coveted treasure and heads for home. Little does anyone know that the mysterious find will cause danger to Mr. Squirrel and once again his friends will have to come to the rescue.
The park is a mess with all kinds of garbage that has been tossed away and it's building up quickly. The friends see the carnage as a call to action. They become litter activists and all in their neighbourhood respond with garbage bags, brooms and sheer will power to come and clean up the area making it safe once again for all to use.
The illustrations are very well done, clear, bold colours and full of expression making the text come alive. The message is simple so kids can understand that littering needs to be irradicated for not only safety sake but for aesthetic sake also. Both humans and animals benefit from becoming good stewards of the environment. I recommend this book.

Meet the Author
I grew up on a farm in rural southern Pennsylvania as the oldest of eight children. My dad was an electrician and my mom was a homemaker. I wrote my first story in sixth grade about animals. My teacher, Mrs. Bakkon, helped me with the grammar. Teachers can be the most wonderful gift to their students. I still think of my teacher, and how she helped to mold me into the person I am today. My story won an award and was published in a magazine.
In high school, I involved myself again in writing as the Sports-Editor and Editor-In-Chief of my school newspaper.
I attended college in Pennsylvania, earning an Associate Degree in Business Administration from The Business School of Widener University, and went on to attain a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Wilkes University.
Years later, I returned to school to earn a Certification in Interior Decorating from Philadelphia University.
After working in sales for a few years, I met my husband and stayed at home to raise our two beautiful and talented children, Michael and Avery.
I am now residing in Miami Beach, Florida, with my two furry children - Sugar and Cookie.
We are planning new adventures as we speak, so stay tuned and thank you for your commitment to reading to kids.
