Oklahoma author and illustrator Betty Selakovich Casey

Thank you for dropping by my author page.  Please visit often so I can let you know about the new books I’m working on, places where I’ll be making author visits, and other news.

My latest picture book is The Prince of the Prairie, a story about the American buffalo or bison. In 2016, the U.S. Congress named the buffalo the 1st National Mammal of the United States.  What an honor for an animal that means so much to Oklahoma! 

Here on the Oklahoma plains, the mighty buffalo has been known for centuries as the Prince of the Prairie!  My book tells the tale of a little urban buffalo who as progress fences him in, joins his friends, Prairie Dog and Meadowlark, in a great escape and journey to the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, where the buffalo still roam.
