Due to requests for a composting guide book for older students, I have begun combining my six book series into a single chapter book. With just a few illustrations, these stories that include composting facts and a glossary, will appeal to a broader audience of ages seven and older. If this is of interest to you, please email me for further details.

Rave reviews from Canada, Michigan & NY!

Larraine is an inspiration to the composting community. Her enthusiasm and adventures with Pee Wee are helping to spread the compost message far and wide. Here is a message and action that is significant in our collective effort to divert valuable organic resources from landfill and return them to the earth for beneficial use through composting.

Susan Antler, Executive Director of the Compost Council of Canada.

My six year old nephew was enthralled! It stirred his imagination (wishes he could shrink down to bug-size) and has my sister getting the composting going again.

Best regards,
