Sizing Up Winter

I’m a little late to announce the release of my new book and I fully blame it on the summer-like weather we’ve been having here in Toronto. It just didn’t seem right to be posting up imagery of snow and ice on a warm, sun-soaked autumn day.

So now that the wind has picked up and I’m wearing a cozy sweater, might I present you with the third book of the Math in Nature series, Sizing Up Winter.

Last year at this time, I was busy working away on the final art for this. It’s hard to believe that in five months time, all four books will have been released. (My oh my, time is ticking for me to get a Math in Nature art show together by then!)

Below is a sampling of some of my favourite pages. I recommend sipping on hot chocolate while reading this book, as the content is quite chilly.



For details on purchasing this book, you can visit the Owlkids Store.
