Meet the Author

My name is Emlyn, and I emerged from the womb with a fountain pen clutched in my left hand–and that’s totally a true story. Reading Harold and the Purple Crayon as a child changed my life, opening my eyes to the world that could exist if only I was willing to create it. I’ve never forgotten that lesson. In fact, I wrote and illustrated my first kid’s books at the age of 8, as a gift to my younger brothers, which means I have almost 20 years of experience as an author (thank you very much).When I’m not writing, I run a large book club in Ann Arbor and am the president of author PR firm Novel Publicity.I’ll be starting out with the Evolved Publishing team with 3 picture books for children 4-6 years old: HONEY THE HERO (about an intrepid parakeet), POPPY THE PROUD (starring a peacock, of course), and DAVEY THE DETECTIVE (featuring a curious crow). Yes, I do love birds, and with the great illustrations and inspiring stories these books will offer, I hope your kids will love them too.I’ll be following up the children’s series with books for middle-graders, teens and adults–everything from YA to literary fiction. I love it all.

    Nothing like a good detective story, and there are often books w

    Nothing like a good detective story, and there are often books with a bit of mystery are not available for this age reader. Emlyn Chand does a great job of keeping the reader in suspense, and at the end, truth is paramount. Children will again learn incredible values, and they will find themselves wrapped up in the mystery. My daughter would have loved this book, and I wish I had found it when she was a little bit younger. The story is one that parents and children will definitely enjoy together.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    I will admit this is the only Bird Brain book that was not a favorite of mine. The moral of the story was spot on, but it was just the way the story came off that was off-putting to me. So I tested it on some of my young friends and found they did not quite get the point, as it took too long to get there. Don't get me wrong this is part of a series that is very good, this is just not one of my favorite stories. All together though, it matches the theme of the series, has the same good story flow and excellent illustrations that one expects from Chand and her collaborators.
    I would also highly recommend this series as a whole to all libraries in the USA, and everywhere. These books are meant to be shared and loved by kids of all ages, and bird lovers alike.

    Tommy the woodpecker lives to watch the humans. He watches a nei

    Tommy the woodpecker lives to watch the humans. He watches a neighborhood every day from the comfort of a high branch in a birch tree. He loves to do this so much that he puts up with the taste of birch even though it isn't his favorite. While watching the neighborhood one day He sees the kids acting very strangely. They are all wearing costumes and shouting at the doors. His friend Michael the raccoon shows up and tells him about Halloween. The two of them decide they want to join in the fun as well. It takes them a few tries to figure out the rules (I.e. say "Trick or treat", wear a costume, and knock on the door) but eventually they get someone open a door only to be denied their hard earned candy. The only solution they have after playing by all the rules is to steal the candy. They steal all the candy and eat until they have belly aches. The problem is that b there's way too much candy leftover. The lessons they learn? They shouldn't steal. They should share. Halloween isn't for animals. Of course they also learned how to properly trick-or-treat. This would be a great story for early trick-or-treaters. The art is as always wonderful and the lessons are all of great value.

    Trick or Treat not Snatch and Grab

    Tommy the woodpecker could not understand why he was not able to peck a hole in a house. He had no problem with trees. When he finally gave up he noticed the boy and girl coming out of the house looked different today. Michael the raccoon raced up the tree to see what Tommy was looking at. Tommy asked why the boy and girl look different? Michael told him it was a special day called Halloween and the little people were going to go door to door and get candy from each house. This sounded like a wonderful idea. He loved candy. They finally came up with a plan and was able to get a large stash of candy. By snatch and grab. Which was not very nice! Do they need a codeword to get the candy?

    Would they eat all that candy? What do you think will happen if they eat too much candy?
    Do you think they should give the candy back since they took it without asking?

    This was a really cute Halloween story. A tale of a mischievous raccoon and woodpecker. In real life they both can be annoying a destructive but they are nice to look watch. The author picked the perfect critters for her characters Tommy and Michael. The illustrations created very cute characters in Tommy and Michael. Michael has sweet blue eyes, to bad he was such a little stinker.

    I recommend this book.
