Battle at Bogs Hollow was the first book created. Sheri was inspired by the lesson and unit plans she was creating at teacher's college for a grade six class on biodiversity. The book was designed to focus on the human impact on the environment. Growing up in Northern Ontario, with a father who was a forester, Sheri learned a lot about deforestation, sustainability, stewardship, and habitat destruction. The idea behind this book was to highlight what is being done to the environment, but at the level that a young mind could understand.
