About Us


(Silent Video)

Our children's book team works to raise reading rates and make healthy concern for the planet a natural part of daily life.

Graeme Lofts is the final editor for the children's books team.


Award-winning Australian author Graeme Lofts deserves first-place mention for his final edits of our books. This former educator of Science and Physics penned numerous text books. He currently writes non-fiction scientific and business books. Graeme promoted adding interesting facts about the iconic animals in the children's books to this website. This builds on the fascinating subject matter and calms blind fears about wildlife.
