Ellie is tired of being fat-shamed and does something about it in this poignant debut novel-in-verse.

Cover may vary.

Ever since Ellie wore a whale swimsuit and made a big splash at her fifth birthday party, she’s been bullied about her weight. To cope, she tries to live by the Fat Girl Rules—like “no making waves,” “avoid eating in public,” and “don’t move so fast that your body jiggles.” And she’s found her safe space—her swimming pool—where she feels weightless in a fat-obsessed world. In the water, she can stretch herself out like a starfish and take up all the room she wants. It’s also where she can get away from her pushy mom, who thinks criticizing Ellie’s weight will motivate her to diet. Fortunately, Ellie has allies in her dad, her therapist, and her new neighbor, Catalina, who loves Ellie for who she is. With this support buoying her, Ellie might finally be able to cast aside the Fat Girl Rules and starfish in real life–by unapologetically being her own fabulous self.

When Humans and Nature come into conflict, Yara Comes to the Rescue!

“…a brilliant story about a girl and a father who come together to solve a life problem and go away with a positive result. This book is a clear winner and highly recommended.” –Bruce Arrington for Readers’ Favorite

A pair of Yellow-Headed Parrots are guarding a well-hidden nest perched high up on an Amazon Rainforest tree. They are confident that their young chicks are safe in their well-hidden nest. But are they?

In this third volume of the award-winning Yara’s Rainforest series, Yara confronts a nest poacher bent on capturing these critically endangered Amazon Rainforest birds and selling them on the black market.

But someone was hiding close under the tree:
”Those birds are amazing – they look perfect for me!

I’ll climb to the top – looks quite easy to scale,
I will get a great price when I put them for sale!’

But Yara was watching the man dressed in black:
‘I know what you’re planning to put in that sack!”

“The theme of rescuing and re-educating a poacher is a fantastic idea…for opening a dialog of conservationism. The artwork by Joanna Pasek is excellent. Yossi has authored a masterful book for children.” Readers’ Favorite

This timely rhyming picture book will educate and delight children and parents alike. It is ideal for beginner readers and it will make bedtime fun for toddlers, preschoolers, and even older kids. It makes a great gift, and it belongs in any picture book collection.
