Wild creatures come in all shapes and sizes. They can be playful or loud or smelly or curious or cute—just like kids! People Are Wild

MARGAUX MEGANCK spends her days dodging raindrops and drawing from her imagination in beautiful Portland, Oregon. From nannying, to early childhood art education, to children's bookshops, Margaux has always worked with and around children's literature. So it came as no surprise when she started illustrating and writing for children. She is an active member of SCBWI and has received portfolio awards from SCBWIOR(2015) and SCBWI-WWA(2017). Margaux has received two Junior Library Guild Awards for her illustrations in Who Counts: 100 Sheep, 10 Coins, and 2 Sons (Westminster John Knox Press, 2017) and The Marvelous Mustard Seed (Flyaway Books, 2018).
