Joann has written several children's books featuring the mischievous tyke, Wee Billy - a character she admits is based on herself since she was a bit of a tomboy growing up and always seemed to be getting into scrapes! She is in demand at schools and children's groups to read her stories and talk with her young audiences about the differences of growing up in Scotland and the USA.
This book, WEE BILLY MEETS JIMMY JUNIOR, features Wee Billy grown up into a playful ten year old who is host in his native Scotland to his American cousin and his folks who are visiting for a family wedding.
Needless to say, the laddies encounter trouble when they dress their snowman in Granda's Drum Major outfit!
The book contains Scottish words and customs which are explained in a glossary. Highlighting the differences between children growing up in Scotland and other countries, this book provides a fun and novel teaching medium.
