Lillie’s first book: “Snake Break!”

Snake Break: A Story About How to Apologize

This short children’s book is an adaptation of my popular cartoon article (for both kids and adults) about good apologies, and follows the story of little Moe, who breaks his father’s snake sculpture — then proceeds to give a TERRIBLE apology, before being shown by his mathematician mother a secret about apologizing well.

The paper book features a new, interactive section that walks kids through a fun 2-page role-play exercise where they first apologize BADLY, then fix it and apologize WELL. After the role-play, there is an 8-page interactive workbook section in which kids can write and draw their own apology scenario.

This book was inspired by a real-life episode with my son — who is now a big fan of the book, and even enjoys quoting it! Click here to browse the book on Amazon (where you can see a preview of the first half of the book), and do consider a purchase and kind review.

But wait — there’s more! There is a whole series of new hand-illustrated children’s books that I’m brewing up over here…

Coming Soon: Happy Homophones!

Stay tuned and consider subscribing, because before the end of the year I’ll be releasing my second book, Happy Homophones, based on the giant list of homophones I’ve been adding to over the months!

Unlike Snake Break, which is an interactive narrative story, Happy Homophones is the kind of deliciously geeky language exploration you’d expect from an English teacher like me. Despite its highly educational nature, it’s meant to be funny and engaging for children — and is chock-full of drawings. I’m looking forward to seeing it in print, and will let you know when it’s available!

Thanks again for all of your support, and I’m happy to take any requests in the comments section below for book versions to be created of other articles on this site, and remember that I also offer posters, printables, and even clothes and mugs in my “Shop” section. Do let me know what you desire to see, and I’ll aim to make as many wishes come true as possible.
