Summary (From Publisher): The series of “TOO” focuses around a sparrow hatchling who is new to life and keen to explore it. He is clever though strong-willed which means he always getting “in” and “out” of trouble – especially when he has a bright idea! Each of the books will broach everyday parental / childcare issues helping children understand the importance of parental guidance and social respect.
“… [The Little Sparrow Named Too is] a rather awesome modern retelling of the classic legend of Icarus, and with such an engaging central character (and brilliant artwork) it’s definitely worthy of your time. We rather liked Too’s punky mohawk…The moral lesson isn’t delivered with a heavy hammer blow, it’s beautifully told. Another smashing addition to your iBooks library for those of you who are blessed with an iPad to read them on. Go and seek it out, and introduce yourself to the world of Too. You’ll be seeing a lot more from this cheeky little fellow really soon!” …” ~ excerpt from ReadItDaddy.com.

About The Author
Due to my father’s job, my early years were spent running barefoot around the wildernesses of the world and though it gave me a rich appreciation of “Bonne Terre” – literacy came a little later than most. Yet every night literature was still there, with either my mother or father reading a bedtime story.
Concerned with my education, my parents made the hard decision to ship me off to boarding school. During those first long nights away from home, I suffered incredible homesickness and that’s when I discovered the magic of words. Reading the same books I had heard at bedtime somehow made me feel closer to home and in those familiar paragraphs my pangs slipped away. To this day good books are still both my joy and my solace.
The Adventures of Too book series is my “thank you” to children’s literature and it carries only one hope, that a new generation of readers feel the same lasting connection to books as I do.
