Friends, I have some really exciting news! My new novel, How I Lost My Ear, is now available worldwide!
I actually started writing this book 10 years ago, before I began Bilingual Monkeys and wrote the book Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability. So it was a really long project and I’m so happy and relieved that I’ve finally crawled across the finish line! In fact, the story itself was basically completed a year ago but then the process of illustrating it took all of 2017…because there are 140 illustrations! The illustrator is the British artist Simon Farrow and he did an incredible job. His illustrations are wonderful!
So I’m thrilled with how the book turned out and I’m eager to share it with you! It’s a really fun story: a humorous, high-spirited adventure that can appeal to all ages (7~107)!
For all the details (and a peek at the illustrations, too), please see this page…
Of course, this book is fiction and different from my nonfiction book about raising bilingual kids, but both books will now serve the same purpose in helping me sustain and strengthen my work at Bilingual Monkeys and The Bilingual Zoo and keep these popular resources free for everyone.
So, as with Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability, when you lend your support to the success of How I Lost My Ear, this can benefit us both as well as many others out in the world.
Friends, please read it, please review it, and please share it through social media and word-of-mouth. Your help is so important and so appreciated. (I’d love your personal feedback, too.)
Many, many thanks! And happy reading!

Mayken: My daughter brought home her ml report card (she gets a separate one from the regular report card at her bilingual school), and it's straight A's! (Better than her marks in ML on the main report card.) I'm so proud!!!
