Written by me and illustrated by the award-winning Nicholas John Frith, Beavers is a delightfully informative, laugh-out-loud full-color look at the most unsuspecting of animal heroes, perfect for readers who like their facts served with a large dose of humor. 

Beavers: The Superpower Field Guide is the first book in my new middle-grade nonfiction Superhero Field Guide series. An unconventional look at the humblest of animals heroes, Beavers will inspire readers to laugh, think, and view the world around them with new eyes.  And I don't mean maybe!
