Children's Book Author & Illustrator. Entertainer.
Larissa, a former lawyer, has been a professional face painter and party entertainer since 2003, and beekeeper since 2014. She's a wife, pet mom, sister, & really cool aunt.
She's been an artist from childhood, loving all mediums, and a teacher since the days she made her younger sister play school when they were little. She isn't scared of any animals, but was very scared of bees until getting several thousand of her own.
Larissa lives in Bergen County, New Jersey with Eric, who's also her biggest supporter; two dogs, Jack and Conor; Catimus, their cat; guinea pig, French Fry; angora rabbit, Mal; shorthaired rabbit, Thumper; Chickens, and several tens of thousands of honey bees.
Join Becca, who loves all animals (except bats), her parents, and her best friend as they make their way through the zoo one sunny afternoon, learning interesting and unusual facts about the animals they see along the way.
When her family reaches the last exhibit, Becca learns the most interesting thing of all - the value of facing her fear.
