Scavenger Scout: Rock Hound Children's Picture Book Series

Scavenger Scout: Rock Hound is an award-winning children's book series for children ages 4 - 8. Scout is a young rock hound who tells tall tales about the real-life rocks in her collection. The stories she tells are more fantasy than reality, but the rocks she hunts are real. She haggles with a host of characters in order to take home her treasured stones. In book one, Scout hunts for alexandrite, azurite and fluorite. In the newly-released book two, Scout is back to hunt labradorite, halite, lace agate and lapis lazuli!

Scavenger Scout is one of the few STEM-inspired picture books that feature a female main character. Scout uses engineering and science in order to overcome challenges throughout the book.

I'm thrilled to work with the very talented illustrator Yana Popova, to bring Scout to life. Behind the scenes: Check out the early concept sketches!
