King Zoom and the Great Seal Pup Rescue
It is the last day of summer vacation for King Zoom and his two cousins. They are playing at a beach on Vancouver Island when they discover a lone harbour seal pup. King Zoom wonders where her mother is, and what if anything he can do to help.
After getting advice from the experts at the Island Wildlife Natural Care Center the rescue begins.
This colourful and richly illustrated book brings the story of King Zoom and the Great Seal Pup Rescue to life. The book ends with an educational section on harbour seals and a recipe for Mindful Muffins.
"The beauty of this story is in its true, gentle telling. There are many life lessons wrapped up in an accessible story for kids and adults alike — in BC and beyond — about what can happen when we approach others with kindness and compassion. King Zoom and the Great Seal Pup Rescue is an inspiration. Walters’ illustrations are vibrant and help bring this sweet story to life. Thank you for rescuing Garfunkel, and for sharing the journey with the rest of us! "

King Zoom the Vegan Kid: Volume 1: Animals used for food
Gillian's second book and the first in a series of non-fiction illustrated children’s books to focus on the social justice movement of our time.
In each book, King Zoom explains the What, Why and How of what it is like to be a Vegan through his real-life experiences in activism. Peaceful communication and self-care skills are outlined. The reader is introduced to several real-life rescued animals through colorful imagery inspired by personal photographs. Each Volume ends with one of King Zoom's favorite vegan recipes.
"When I read, King Zoom the Vegan Kid, Animals used for food, I felt a deep sense of calm come over me, realising that a vegan world is just around the corner. When a young person has such insight into the wrongs we have inflicted on animals and shows us how we can end this by making kinder choices, we truly are stepping into the world we all wish to belong to - a vegan utopia.
He explains the facts about animal suffering in a way that immediately encourages empathy whilst simultaneously sharing the animals' experiences through their own stories of how unnatural their lives are. The imagery throughout the book captures the imagination without traumatising the reader, allowing them to keep reading whilst truly imagining living in a kinder world we all have a part in creating. I believe this book is a a powerful addition to the vegan movement which I would like to see in schools and homes around the world."
