About the Author
Lee Hunter is a child care professional and runs her own child care business. Lee and her husband have an indoor cat called Nemo. Nemo struggled to adjust to the children being present in his once quiet home and rather than keep the children at a distance Lee tried to encourage Nemo to trust the children but also for the children to understand Nemo and his needs. Through her experiences with children it soon became apparent to her that there was a further need for young children to become comfortable, confident and aware of boundaries around animals. This then inspired Lee to begin the wonderful adventure of writing for children. Lee hopes to be able to teach children how to care for animals and how to respond to their individual needs. She hopes that being able to respond to these needs will enable children to be able to respond to the needs and emotions of family, friends and peers. Lee hopes that if a child can respond appropriately to the needs of an animal and be able to acknowledge the animal as a being with feelings and not an object that it will positively impact on the child throughout life. Lee also hopes to be able to teach children valuable life lessons including friendship. Lee is also an active animal rights supporter and hopes that if children can learn how to treat animals appropriately and with compassion that it will positively impact on how they treat animals later in life and hopes that it will help stop animal cruelty.

Additionally, it is obvious that the author has considered young readers in mind, as the beautiful illustrations compliment the sentences succinctly, with careful consideration to the layout of words on the page too.
Overall, an excellent book that encourages young readers to enjoy reading more whilst also learning key important lessons in life.
This is definitely one of the nicest books for young children that I have come across in a long time. A real treat!
Lee Hunter writes beautifully, perfect for a young reader to digest, further, as the mother of a special child with autism as one of his challenges, and a young reading age, I am always looking for illustrated books to hold his attention, and this one certainly did. We both enjoyed the story and the wonderful illustrations by Lindy Damen.
Sometimes you find a book that is perfectly crafted, a good marriage of pictures and words. This is just such a book. Read it for the story and illustrations, and for the lovely message behind it. We can make friends with all sorts of people.
I would recommend it as an enjoyable, and artfully educational, read.
Giraffe is always by Nemo’s side, and offers comfort when he is scared. Although Nemo has never been out of the house to feel grass under his paws he doesn’t feel as though he has missed anything. The special bond he and Giraffe share is one that is magical.
NEMO AND GIRAFFE is a heart-warming tale of the power of true friendship. I found that the graphics enhanced the overall story content. Lee Hunter has done a magnificent job in writing this book for youth. I highly recommend it to any parent or library as one that will greatly heighten a child’s reading level.
Nemo and Giraffe is loveable book that both myself and my little one enjoyed! The story is lots of fun with a great message behind it. The illustrations are bright and colourful and the characters are just fantastic. I also found the sentence structure and pacing perfect and my little one’s eyes lit up every time we turned onto a new page.
My little one has asked for Nemo and Giraffe every night since we first read it and is already a firm favourite in our household.
