My picture book, “No Help Wanted!” launches today! Huge thanks to Scholastic Canada-especially my wonderful editor, Anne Shone & art director, Andrea Casault. And thank you to all for supporting me and my books!
Posy always has a plan. But when she takes charge of the new classroom pet, things don’t go well. Can Posy admit that she needs help to bring Bluey back around? In this school-based story, a high-achieving child needs a reminder that it's okay to ask for help and that cooperation wins the day.
Thank you Scholastic Canada!
