The first book in the series of Maya the giraffe, became available September 2021.
The stories about Maya are first of all about being curious, with the added rewards one gets from being kind to others.
It was important for me to keep the anatomy of the animals as close to the real ones as possible – still not missing out on the playfulness of them being cartoons. The setting takes place in Tanzania, Africa.
Each book has 26-30 pages with 15-20 colorful illustrations. Suitable for children from 2 years old and up.
