A Sample of Patricia’s Books


The Pirate and the Penguin
The Pirate and the Penguin is a droll modern take on Mark Twain’s classic children’s tale The Prince and the Pauper. Penguin has had it with the South Pole.



Never Let You Go
Love is holding on tight — and knowing when to let go.

In this warm, funny book, an adorable penguin learns that Mom or Dad “will never let you go.” Safely assured by the steadfast love of a parent, the little penguin can begin to explore its world bit by bit — draw a picture, chase the stars, even throw a tantrum — secure in the knowledge that a doting parent is always waiting in the wings.

The Ghosts go Spooking

It’s Halloween night and the ghosts are marching in! Little ghosts go trick-or-treating by ones, twos, and up to ten in this spooky and fun-filled take on “The Ants Go Marching.” Hurrah, hurrah!
