Books

In 2009, the first Apple Leaves book was published. 10 years later, Apple Leaves 2 hit the shelves. Apple leaves is a children's book series with Skyy Hill as the main character. She's funny, caring, kind, has lots of friends and loves her family. Whenever she's in a pickle, she always seems to come out on top. Although Skyy is defiant at times, where there's a will, she will always find a way! The Apple Leaves book series is about friendship and patience.
