Russell Irving is an author and illustrator creating soulful, quirky, educational books to inspire readers 
to care for the natural world around them, and in turn, themselves.

A reminder of the calming and healing benefits of spending quiet time in nature, learning to patiently watch, listen and learn.

The Lonely Jacaranda

A gentle reminder of the impact a
simple act of kindness can have.

"The Lonely Jacaranda is an uplifting fable which celebrates acceptance and the importance of embracing our unique gifts and differences.  A wonderful picture book for educators wanting to explore social topics of intolerance, inclusivity, and nurture in nature."

Lisa Hoad, Children's Book Council of Australia
