Author and illustrator, Sheila Jarkins, writes what she believes children will enjoy. ÒWhat kid wouldnÕt love riding on an elephant, swinging from a vine, and wallowing in the mud,Ó she states. So, for this third book in the Marco series, Sheila sent Marco off on a jungle adventure.
Sheila has enjoyed careers in art, education, dance and theater. She continues to teach, travel and enjoy the company of children, especially her three grandchildren. She lives in the Finger Lakes region of New York State with her husband and a domesticated feral cat with a jungle soul.
