Mel on All the Wonders

I'm thrilled and honored to announce that I am now a contributor on the amazing children's book site All the Wonders!


All the Wonders is a collective of working writers, podcasters, filmmakers, musicians, and visual artists who feel that great books deserve a life beyond the shelf. We believe that children make a more lasting connection with a story when they can experience it in various forms. Therefore, our goal is to expand the universe of the books we love by offering up podcasts, videos, songs, crafts, and much more, all centered on those great works of literature and the people who make them. This content, we hope, will inspire not just a new generation of bookworms, but a new generation of book creators as well.

Right now we're celebrating All the Wonders of Swap!, a picture book from author/illustrator Steve Light about a broken down ship, a pirate captain overcome with sadness, and how a peg-legged boy saves the day through some inventive swapping. Be sure to stop by to experience the book from every creative angle, and stay tuned for some fun articles coming soon from yours truly!
