CBCA SHORTLISTED - 2021
Go Away, Worry Monster!, illustrated by Robin Tatlow-Lord and published by EK Books was shortlisted by CBCA for New Illustrator of the Year Award. Congratulations Robin! Go Away, Worry Monster! can be ordered from www.ekbooks.org and wherever great books are sold.
Worry Monster loves ‘helping’ Archie worry, especially the night before he starts his new school. Archie feels so anxious that his head hurts, his tummy flutters and his heart pounds. He soon realizes that the only way to feel better is to make Worry Monster go away. He does his belly breaths and challenges his inner fears by facing facts. Go Away, Worry Monster! gives children useful strategies to cope with their anxieties and stress, showing them how to make their own Worry Monsters leave.

Due for release by EK Books later in 2023!
Brooke and Robin have teamed up again!
Nova has lost the gift she made for her Dad's birthday! She's going to need to stay calm if she wants to find it again.
When Nova realises the artwork she created for Dad's birthday present is missing, her tummy flip flops and her heart kerthumps. She and her dog, Harley, turn the house upside down, searching absolutely everywhere, but the missing masterpiece is nowhere to be found. Nova loses her temper but Harley remains calm and content. Can Nova learn from her dog, calm herself down and find her Dad's present in time for his birthday party?
