Hey, everyone! I am super-excited to share the news that I’m about to author my first series of kids’ books!
The books will be based on a popular South Korean cartoon called Gyuri & Friends, produced by TunTun English. This series will follow little dragon Gyuri and his friends (Bella, Ducky, Teeny, Leo & Jojo) on many adventures. The stories will be written for kids ages 3-4.
Catch Gyuri & Friends on their YouTube channel:
Owl’s Nighttime Surprise, an early reader ESL book I’ve written with simple language and drills, is currently in production with Tuntun English. Here’s a peek of two book panels that combine the text (not yet finalized) with the illustration.
Love the artwork? It’s the talent of Ethan Long, an Emmy-nominated animator, illustrator and author, best known for Disney Jr.’s Tasty Time with ZeFronk.
Kudos to my good friend, author Jennifer Byrne, who just published the very useful and hilarious girl’s guide Fake It: More Than 100 Shortcuts Every Woman Needs to Know. This book makes all those time-sucking tasks — like doing the laundry, baking a homemade dessert for a school fundraiser, and maintaining a socially acceptable level of hygiene (shaving, again!?) — seem effortless!
Check it out, then consider buying a copy for all the women in your life this holiday season!
