Based in biodiversity-rich Ecuador, Alan wears several hats: he is an author-illustrator, an educator and a conservation biologist. Alan’s work is inspired by the majesty and fragility of nature and the need to do everything we can to protect it.
Alan combines his artistic creativity with his technical experience and knowledge to create scientifically accurate, educational children’s books full of quirky, comic humour and fun action, and usually bearing a message about how everyone can help preserve Nature.
Alan draws the artwork in his comic or picture books by hand and then edits it all digitally.
He is the author of five educational comic books for middle grade children, among which his main ongoing focus is the Captain Polo series about climate change.
Alan is also the author of 3 climate change-themed picture books for children within the 6-8 age range.

This is essentially the message in this picture book. The clothing industry accounts for a surprising proportion of the greenhouse gas emissions contributing to global warming.
So making your own Halloween costume is another way of combatting the climate crisis in a purposeful way.
Here we see Captain Polo and his side-kick, Penguin, arriving at the Halloween party taking place in the haunted mansion on the hill.
They are wearing borrowed sheets and going as ghosts!
This is a fun picture book for kids aged 6 to 8, available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback.
