Our Children’s Books

As ocean educators, authors, and illustrators, we are passionate about sharing the wonder of the ocean world! 

We lovingly hand-draw and hand-paint each page of our adventurous stories.

“Everett” Taylor is our pen name, after our grandpop who meant so much to us.


Mira, the Misfit Sea Dragon

mira cover

“Mira the sea dragon was unlike any other creature you might have known. For she had become odder and odder the more she had grown.” Mira is a wandering sea dragon (a fish related to seahorses) who is beautiful in the most unique of ways, but just can’t seem to find where she belongs. She roams the ocean, encountering many places and creatures, but none of these places feel quite right. Where will Mira find her home where she belongs? With brilliantly colored artwork that seems to pop off the page, the ocean and its animals come to life.  Ages 4-8.
