She is a contributor the Three Silly Chicks blog and lives in Ottawa, Illinois.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–In this rollicking counting book, 10 little chimps sneak out of their tree house to go dancing at Mambo Jambas, where a pig band plays music all night long. One by one, each monkey jives with a different jungle animal, and a rhythmic verse describes that particular creatures style (Rhino hustles in/just to prove hes got the groove./Shake it, Rhino! Shake it, boy!/Lets see that body move). Meanwhile, the remaining siblings boogie to the repeated refrain (ee-ee-/oo-oo-/ah-ah-ah!/9 little chimps do the/cha-cha-cha). The rhymes roll easily off the tongue, making the text fun to read aloud. However, there is no indication–either verbal or visual–of where each chimp goes as the book counts down from 10 to 1, but they all reappear at the end when Mama Chimp arrives to take them home. Once they are tucked in bed, she calls a babysitter so that she can put on her own dancing shoes. Done in watercolor and pencil, the illustrations are bright and lively, and each chimp is clothed in a unique and colorful outfit. The jungle animals are also fabulously costumed. All in all, the cha-cha-cha chant and upbeat artwork make this book a good storytime addition.–Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
