Featuring Stacy Nyikos and "Toby"

Today I'm so happy to feature friend and fellow author Stacy Nyikos with her latest picture book, TOBY!

For anyone who's been fascinated with the amazing journey that cute little sea turtles have to take when they hatch to make it to the ocean, TOBY is perfect. I admit that while reading the book, it found a special place in my heart. We watched the sea turtles be released into the ocean a couple years back at Padre Island National Seashore, and I couldn't help but think of those darling little turtles as I read TOBY. It's fun. It's cute. What more could you want?

TOBY by Stacy Nyikos (Stonehorse Publishing, June 30, 2014)

About TOBY:

Birds and crabs and crocs - oh my! - stand between Toby and his new ocean home. Can he outslip, outslide, out double-flip and dive them? Join this plucky little sea turtle on his adventures from egg to ocean.

About Stacy Nyikos:

In a quiet little office/at a comfy little desk/Stacy Nyikos chews on pencils/and scribbles silliness…when she’s not plucking splinters from her teeth, that is. Stacy holds an MFA in Writing (silliness) for Children from Vermont College. She spends her days chasing—or being chased—by stories. Toby is her latest catch. He sees it the other way around—catching her in the form of two very curious but courageous rescue sea turtle’s she met during a behind the scenes tour of her local aquarium. Either way, a lot of pencils got crunched writing his story.

TOBY releases on June 30, 2014!
