Peyton Pep is a precocious little girl with a spirit to match her name. Always on the lookout for new adventures, her favorite expression is “Why Not?” Full of whimsy and accompanied by cute and colorful illustrations, Why Not? invites young readers to use their imaginations and explore their creative side.

 

About Amanda:

Motherhood provided the inspiration for becoming a children's writer and led to the creation of my first picture book series, Monster on the Loose. Now, as a children's author, I continue to meet countless remarkable children who, along with my own son and daughter, turn everyday adventures into unforgettable moments--which is where each new story begins.

 

In addition to writing children's books, I also hold degrees in anthropology and psychology, am a member of SCBWI, and a book reviewer for Children's Literature: A CLCD Company.
