Trivia to Know About This Book

  • Where did you originally get the idea for this book?

    I volunteered at my local wildlife shelter with my teenage son. I was amazed by the interesting abilities of the wild animals in my own neighborhood and became passionate about helping them. I also learned that many of our good intentions (seeing a baby bird trying to fly by itself and thinking that it has been abandoned) are not good for the animals we are trying to help. I wanted this book to inspire kids to learn the right tips for helping animals and to be amazed by their specialness like I was.

  • What part of creating this book did you most enjoy?

    The research! I loved talking to vets and other wildlife shelter rescuers about the animals I based my stories on.

  • When was your favorite time reading this book aloud? Why?

    My local shelter hosts an event called “The Spooky Creature Walk” around Halloween. Visitors can walk through a candle-lit path in a local forest and meet the different ambassador animals (animals that can not be released back to the wild). I read stories from my book about some of the animals the visitors saw on their walk!
