Hi! It's Anika. Welcome to my "blogsite!" Here, you'll find information about my books, sneak peeks at works-in-progress, reviews, news about events and where in the world I am when not running around with my three daughters, or sitting at my computer writing a story.
I love hearing from readers, so feel free to send me an email if you have a question about books, writing, school visits, or how to make the famous "Island" cookies I bring with me to book signings. (It's a super-secret recipe, but I'll tell you.) You can also check out the nifty "Frequently Asked Questions" section for author-ish tidbits and helpful links.
Bella and Stella Come Home
Illustrations Copyright © 2010
by Christopher Denise
"The sweet narrative, told from Bella’s point of view, perfectly captures the little girl’s psyche. The story is enhanced by luminous, almost photographic illustrations drawn in shades of pink, ivory, and gold. With her expressive features and mop of dark curls, Bella stands out on each page." —School Library Journal
"A splendid marriage of words and pictures". —Kirkus Reviews
Pigs Love Potatoes -A "Parents' Choice" Selection
“Children who are learning to count will enjoy trying out their skills, but this amiable picture book offers more than just counting—a childlike story told in short, rhyming phrases and a most appealing family of pigs … A natural for reading aloud.” —Booklist
“Even after youngsters are adept at counting to 10, they'll find much to cherish here.”
