A big thanks to Ev who helped me out with these!

NEW! Thanks to Wendy, here's a link for anyone who has children still in school that may need a little extra practice in math. She has created some worksheets that are free on her site. They include practice in adding, subtracting, etc., and a couple of math games plus two game templates so you can use your own math problems. Also there are a few grammar and history worksheets available.

Coming Soon! "Dotty's Topsy Tale"


A brand new tale in the Topsy Turvy Land series will be released soon - Dotty's Topsy Tale, written by myself and illustrated by the multi-talented Kevin Scott Collier. Watch for details, and here's a sneak peek at the cover!


Another Coloring Page!



Another coloring page drawn by Kevin Scott Collier, featuring a beautiful bird called the Toucan and Dotty - both in Topsy Turvy Land. Have fun!

Click on the word 'Toucan' to see how a real one looks. What's different about the one from Topsy Turvy Land?

After you've colored, scan your picture and send it to me. But remember - ask a parent first!








*Click on the picture, then print! It will print out full size ready to be colored. If that doesn't work with your printer, right click on the picture, and then 'save picture as...' and then you can print it out using your photo program.
