Lobsters on the Loose

In “Lobsters on the Loose” a routine trip to the grocery store turns into an amazing adventure as a brave young boy helps the lobsters in the seafood department at the grocery store make a great escape. The sea creatures flee their tiny tank but can they make their way back to the sea? Find out in this 48-page, easy-to-read rhyming book.

My Father Flies

India, Africa, Australia, and a host of countries come to life in “My Father Flies,” as a devoted dad travels the globe. Each country’s customs, cultures, and attractions are explored as he brings tales of his every adventure back to his young son.
