Well, at least fifth Mondays shouldn’t occur more than about four times a year. As threatened, we will discuss our books this week. All these books should be available on most book selling sites. We list only the Scribl.com link, where we think they will be least expensive.

Betty Higbie’s Flossie Q Fish is a picture book that describes Flossie’s search for the source of a noise that disturbed her peace. Flossie asks for help from a variety of fish and mammals and finally learns that she should have seen what’s around her, waiting to be seen. Flossie is suitable for reading by six to eight year olds or for reading to younger children. It was illustrated by Caryl McHarney and is listed under her name at Scribl.com. (Her illustrations are wonderful.) Flossie includes a page of Fin Facts that describe some of the scientific background for the story. [https://www.scribl.com/books/E4X7E/flossie-q-fish].

The Science Wowzers for Kids are taken from Flossie and Betty’s other children’s works.

Lee Higbie has two non-fiction books, one on wine and one on writing that are the basis for his blogs on these topics. These will be published as soon as e-publisher Scribl.com publishes non-fiction.

He has also written two novels, with extensive help from Betty, under the pen name BJ Creighton.
