"Text and art gracefully advance two themes—cooperation toward a goal and appreciation of nature’s magic—while also lulling restless readers toward naptime or bedtime. Destined to be a favorite bedtime read-aloud." - Kirkus

“Awash in shades of purple, blue, and pink, [Ashling] Lindsay’s watercolor and digital artwork project the magic evoked by Brydon’s smooth rhymes, illuminating a magnetic portrait of woodland camaraderie.” - Publisher's Weekly

"This winter tale would work well for dusky afternoon story hours in December or a bedtime story; the muted illustrations and the text, which has a perfect scan and beat, begin energetically but slow to soothing, steady levels as the animals settle down to sleep.” - School Library Journal

My latest book, THE GREAT BIG ME EXPERIMENT, published in October 2023 with Odd Dot/Macmillan!

If Bill Nye the Science Guy and a pre-teen Daniel Tiger got together to make a SLAM book, the result would be this nonfiction book for 8 - 12 year olds.


This book contains 75 experiments—from sweet, gross, and silly to serious and thought-provoking—designed to get a kid asking questions and really learning about themselves physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially.
