“The Humpy Grumpy Camel lives in the UAE and is surrounded by fast cars, tall buildings and miles of desert.  He loves the movies and dreams of becoming an action star.  One day, his dreams miraculously come true and he receives action star status, but can he rise to the challenge?  Learn from Julia if his unlikely rescue mission succeeds!  Young children love the adventures of Humpy Grumpy Camel.

Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick, of the internationally renowned David Sheldrick Trust, endorsed Julia’s story of Ubuntu, Summer of the Rhino, which was penned for Rhino Revolution Dubai and explores the true, heart rending story of an orphaned rhino calf in the South African savannah.  This book is suitable for children over eight (and adults) and is the perfect story to raise awareness of the plight facing rhinos and the particularly endearing qualities of a young rhino calf.  Did you know that they love to have their tummies tickled and of course rolling in mud is rhino heaven! All royalties and a percentage of book sales will be donated to saving these ancient dinosaur-like creatures.

Johnson’s previous books include The Pearl Diver and The Camel That Got Away.  The Leopard Boy won a Kirkus star in America and The Turtle Secret won the Best International Children’s Book Award at Sharjah International Book Fair in 2014.”
