Agent info

Joan's life work is this series of 25 luminously composed children’s books, each with an animal protagonist, a compelling geographic location, an important life skills message and multicultural enrichment materials.

Each serious lesson is embedded in an exciting colorful adventurous story...subtle, indeed.

The books have been proofed and re-proofed for the most exacting standards of accuracy in grammar, punctuation and fact checking. They have been reviewed…pre-publication…by teachers and librarians for relevance and the power of the message.
