New Children's Picture Book: Humberto the Bookworm Hamster

I'd like to announce the release of my third children's picture book, Humberto the Bookworm Hamster, now available in both print and ebook formats!

Humberto is an antisocial little hamster he's totally addicted to books! His neighbors, the squirrel, the rabbit, the skunk, the hedgehog and the beaver want to become his friends, but Humberto doesn't have time for them. He's too busy reading! Then one day, disaster strikes and he must choose between saving his books and helping his soon-to-be friends.

What reviewers are saying...

"Humberto the Bookworm Hamster explores the joys of reading and friendship. Humberto's gift of imagination will delight children as much as his kindness towards others will inspire them."
ÔÇôThe Kids Book Connection

"This is an adorable tale of friendship sure to delight young readers. I loved the story and also the cute illustrations. A fun read aloud. My eight-year-old also loved reading about Humberto and his love of books. A must add to any children's collection." Kim Bacciella, YABooksCentral
