Dear Reader,

Growing up, I loved animals and I also enjoyed drawing them! My note books were filled with large elephants, pods of killer whales, and other wild creatures. I eventually attended an Art School and got a job working in video games, where I continued drawing animals... CUTE ONES!

With my debut picture book, I wanted to combine all the things that I loved most — art, animals, and game design.

HEY, WHO MADE THIS MESS? follows a zookeeper as she and her animal friends try to figure out who is leaving a great big mess in their zoo. As the animal friends dig deeper into the mystery, their fears of what it might be grows as well. Is it a SLEEPY monster? Or a SCRATCHY monster? Or is it something totally unexpected?

YOU the reader will search for tiny hidden clues in each page that will help solve the case. And if you don't see it the first time, you can always go back and read it again!

Thank you and I hope you enjoy my book!
