Congratulations to my illustrated book, Honey Girl: The Hawaiian Monk Seal, written by Jeanne Walker Harvey. Honey Girl was selected as a 2018 NSTA-CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book. Check out the complete list here.
I traveled far from my Boston home to the shores of Oahu to do research for my illustrations. Here's a bit about this amazing book:
Hawaiian locals and visitors always enjoy spotting endangered Hawaiian monk seals, but Honey Girl is an extra special case. She has raised seven pups, and scientists call her “Super Mom.” After Honey Girl is injured by a fishhook, she gets very sick. Scientists and veterinarians work to save Honey Girl so she can be released back to the ocean. This true story will have readers captivated to learn more about this endangered species.
