BOOK NEWS: The Boy Who Grew A Forest

August 27, 2018

When I first came across Jadav Payeng's story, I immediately connected to it. Jadav's love of trees and his belief in the need for ecological conservation are values that are very close to me. I talk more about this in my author's note and will save the rest for the book. But I just want to say how incredibly excited I am to be able to share Jadav's story with children everywhere. 


I'm thrilled to announce that THE BOY WHO GREW A FOREST: THE TRUE STORY OF JADAV PAYENG will be illustrated by the wonderfully talented Kayla Harren and released with Sleeping Bear Press in March 2019. Not only that, but the book is available to preorder or add to a list on Good Reads now! I've included links below, along with this sneak peek of Kayla's beautiful illustrations.
