Read full description of the books The Magical World of Butterflies:In this first book of a new series, Too Woo, the teaching Owl, explores the Magical World of Butterflies. From migration to butterflies in space, rarely has such fun learning and activity been packed into one small book. We learn about the life of Butterflies from the egg through caterpillar, chrysalis and finally the beautiful winged miracle that is the result of a magical process. The dangers these creatures face and the surprising help some get. New ideas, words and natural processes are explained with full color illustrations, a combination of fact and fun images, all based on the author's watercolour paintings. Learn why Latin and Greek are important to scientists and why they thank Carl von Linne for a great idea. There's a story about a greedy spider, tips about explorer's kit, pages to colour, a quiz and space for notes. Included are print and web resources that will help to develop and nurture the interest this book will create. The series, "Exploring with TooWoo" looks at the natural world in a fresh way that will stimulate interest and a desire to learn. The combination of words and pictures make even difficult concepts and words accessible and engaging. The books manage to be both thought provoking and fun, stimulating the reader to enquire further and providing a foundation for a lifetime interest in the creatures that share our world. Although listed for Grade 4 (9 to 10 year olds) the book has a wide appeal from Grade 3 up to Grade 6 (age 8 to 12). It's a great book to read and share with Children as young as 5 years who love the illustrations and greedy spider story. Please check for other titles in the series."
Read information about the authorI started writing and painting as a small child often getting into trouble because absorbed in my activity I did not notice a new lesson had started. English, history, nature and art were my favourite subjects. At 13, I passed the exam to go to art school. The focus was on producing commercial artists with endless pressure to concentrate on inanimate still life. Oddly, no one could explain that still life with its shape, form and shade is a vital foundation. I was an artist not an automaton and dropped out deciding to become a farmer instead. Many years later I appreciate and paint still life.
I loved farm life and the animals, but realised if I were ever to own my own farm, still an ambition, I needed money and that meant business. My business career took me to most countries in the world and the privilege of living and working in West Africa, Ukraine, Central Asia (where I met my wife), Germany and Luxembourg. I've always had a love of nature and discovering new (to me) flora and fauna in each new place added a special excitement.
In 2010 I was diagnosed with cancer and that put an end to my business career. I'm a happy survivor, grateful to be alive and to have a new career. Well two actually. My wonderful wife works and I’m a househusband responsible for washing, ironing cleaning and cooking. The cooking I love, especially Indian and Chinese cuisine, fish dishes and pastry. My second career is writing and illustrating; the magical world of butterflies is the first in a series about the natural world and I've just added one about bees. I like writing for children and try to present information in a way I would have enjoyed when young. Who knows how my life would have developed if someone had been able to explain still life to me.
