Extremely Gross Animals Gets Some Love!

My latest kids' science book, Extremely Gross Animals: Stinky, Slimy and Strange Animal Adaptations, has cropped up in a couple of very satisfying places recently.

It's a finalist for the 2023 Diamond Willow Award, Saskatchewan's children's choice award. My picture book, Underneath the Sidewalk, won the related Shining Willow Award a few years ago, and the award celebration and ceremony in a Saskatoon school was beyond awesome. Great to be in the running again, Saskatchewan!

Also, Extremely Gross Animals is on the book list for the TD Summer Reading Club. I hope it's an inspiration for kids to look closely at the world around them while they're out enjoying summer holidays.
