Faiz's book The Frog who Loved Mathematics is a finalist in the The Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards. The book has also been translated into French, German and Russian.
It's a well written little story about a frog who is not accepted in the beginning. The other frogs have another colour and are not kind to him. But when he does something special, than their eyes are opening and they see more than a blue frog.
This story has a great lesson for all of us.
It's my wish for the New Year : accept each other as they are. Let people be themselves.
Also the drawings are very nice : I like the green and blue. The colours of nature!
To Faiz : It's a beautiful little tresure!

Faiz loves to write funny children's books. Over the years he has been lucky enough to share childrens' enjoyment in his books when working with schools on literacy and reading projects. He has also received some great reviews, awards and media coverage. His books have been translated into French, Spanish, German and Russian.
Everything in daily life provides some inspiration for the wacky characters in Faiz’s books - even his serious day job. In fact, some of the craziest and funniest ideas have popped into his head while he has been working on something completely unrelated to children's books!
Faiz enjoys writing about what he thinks his young family and their friends would like and find funny. He hopes that his books help bring the joy of reading to life for children and their families.
