In the news!:

Review in CM Magazine

Keep Out! is truly a compelling story, with hints given throughout the book about who or what is causing the piping plovers’ eggs to be broken. Readers may be particularly interested in learning that the piping plover attempts to distract predators by pretending to have a broken wing. Keep Out! is especially recommended for emergent or reluctant readers, but it can be enjoyed by just about anyone.”

Review in The Chronicle Herald

“An excellent little mystery written in a fun, engaging, straightforward style makes Keep Out! a good choice for newer independent readers.”

Review in KNOW Magazine:

9 year-old Isabella says: “What I liked best about the book is that there is science and a mystery mixed together. I learned that when a sign says “Keep Out,” it is for a good reason, like to protect endangered species. I also learned a lot about the piping plover, a bird I had never heard of before. The drawings of the piping plovers were amazing. I would tell a friend that if they liked science, nature, animals, and mystery books then they will absolutely love this book.”
