What is your latest release and what genre is it? Ospreys in Danger is a chapter book for young readers aged 7 – 9.
Quick description: Ospreys in Danger is an ecological adventure that develops the concept of environmental stewardship and the idea that kids can make a difference. When an osprey nest atop an electrical pole catches on fire, Cricket and her best friend find three abandoned baby ospreys hiding in the grass. Caring for the chicks is challenging. The birds are noisy, hungry and very picky eaters, and the girls can’t wait to get them back to the rebuilt nest. But the power company doesn’t want the birds living on the electrical pole. How can Cricket reunite the baby birds with their parents?
Pamela has written 26 non-fiction books for children and is looking forward to the release of 9 more this fall. Before she started writing, Pamela taught junior high and high school in Alberta and British Columbia. She looks forward to returning to the classroom to share Ospreys in Danger with students in Grades 2 and 3.
What are you working on now?
Cricket and her friends were so much fun that I am continuing to write about their adventures with wildlife in Waterton Lakes National Park.
Pamela’s reading recommendation:
Janet Gurtler must be a teenager in an adult body. In Who I Kissed and I’m Not Her, Janet captures the adolescent voice and creates a compelling story.
