My first picture book in the Bella and Britt series, One Pelican at a Time, is getting close to its release date of early 2011. The book tells the story of the girls' heroic efforts to save the old crooked beaked pelican from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. They have know the pelican all their lives, and he, more than anything, stands for everything good about the beach. Along the way, Bella and Britt assist other pelicans who are in trouble.
This was an emotionally difficult book to research and, in some ways, hard to write. It is my wish that children take heart and courage from Pelican and do their part to help save this fragile planet they are to inherit.
