Ra Ra Ra!

The Whistle Thorn Tree is now available everywhere!

 

I am also updating my website

Some reviews:

A heartwarming whimsical story that will delight children and parents alike. Informative, fun, engaging, and beautifully illustrated with unusually soft watercolour images that evoke the nature of each African animal in a fresh and unique way. I loved it. (Via Amazon)

 Even if you try your best to explain away a thorn’s prick to a wailing grandkid, you won’t come close to Michelle’s magical, beautiful watercolours and pictures of this small grumpy African acacia looking for friends…A treasure for all ages.  (J. M. via email)

 Why not join the fun? You can leave reviews, yes.

Cell Splits

50 Words Universe


Miss Universe was so attractive!
Now Mommy Universe was gravid.
Baby, it’s time to split.
My little one! Stay with me forever.
But teenage universes can be difficult, and soon have to leave home.
One universe becomes two.
And so on and so forth.
A beginning, a middle, no end.
