Local author BB Denson signs her oil-and-gas-friendly picture books in her Gary the Go-Cart series!
About the author: After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Civil Engineering, BB began her career in Lafayette, Louisiana as an engineer for Amoco in 1980. A true passion for the environment led her to begin working for an environmental science company, which is where she has been for the last several years. In 2016 BB began writing children's books about the energy industry because she believes that there is much misinformation about how the oil and gas industry is bad for the environment and hopes to educate kids and parents alike with fun stories that are factually accurate. BB is married to Al H Denson and they have four daughters. She had no idea that life would take her in this direction, but she is enjoying the ride and hopes you are too.
Gary the Go-Cart: Wind blows is a fun story, written in poetry with rhyme and cadence. It is illustrated by the late, great, award-winning Sidnei Marques. This book is educational, too, in that it compares Oil and Gas to Wind Energy in a way that even kids can understand at some level. Teenagers and adults will read it on a much deeper level.
Gary wants to go far and wants to go fast. He doesn't want to be slow like go-carts from the past. "Wind Blows" details Gary's adventures as he explores Wind Energy and compares it to Oil and Gas. You might be surprised by what he learns. Ms. Denson simplifies some rather complicated ideas about energy and makes them fun.
The Gary the Go-Cart series was written to balance the conversation surrounding energy and the environment.
