Ibex Idiom

Written and illustrated by Megan McNellis

"Unique" is a word that's most often used incorrectly, but in this case it accurately describes Megan McNellis' books. On her website she shares how she came to create them:

"Growing up, I was one of those kids that asked a lot of questions about the world so, I ended up consuming countless issues of National Geographic Magazine, Eye Witness Books, and the World Book Encyclopedia. I read about lots of different subjects; rocks, glaciers, indigenous people, and my favorite - animals.

To help me remember the facts and for the pure enjoyment of it, I frequently made little illustrated books out of scraps of paper that were held together by tape and staples about whatever creature was interesting me at the time. These hand-bound books I made as a child are not much different than my current work (although my language skills have improved and my renderings are much better)."

Now her grown-up versions are available -- Kiwi SimileAnt Adaptation,Anteater Analogy, and now Ibex Idiom! Her work combines solid science, interesting anecdotes, humor for all ages, and eye-catching illustrations into books that will be enjoyed by readers of all ages.

Visit Megan's website at www.meganmcnellis.com for more info about her books!



Join us on April 19 to meet Megan and enjoy her funny, fascinating books! We'll even have stickers!
