About the author (1998)

Shelley Tanaka is an award-winning children s book author and editor. She is the author of "Amelia Earhart and Mummies: The Newest, Coolest & Creepiest from Around the World", as well as several other books in the I Was There series. She lives in Kingston, Ontario.

Elise and William Hicks live in a beautiful coastal urban forest sanctuary called Mariners Village located in Marina del Rey, CA, which they are struggling to defend from greedy developers and L.A. County officials who want to remove over 1,000 mature trees and who obviously have never read The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. From their balcony, they can observe majestic Great Blue Herons, which nest in a 7-story mature pine tree, completely oblivious that their home is in danger-the last nesting grounds left for them in this part of L.A. Elise and William live with their needy co-dependent Ragdoll cat, Romeow, who is just as clueless as the herons.
