About the book Matchy Matchy: 

Maria always matches, but Maria doesn’t want to be so matchy matchy. One day she mixes it up in this colorful and quirky picture book
Thanks to Mom, everything about Maria matches—her clothes, her socks, her underwear, her backpack, and her lunchbox. Maria even matches the dog, the duvet, and the doilies. But Maria doesn’t want to be so matchy matchy. She wants to mix it up! Feathers and fringe! Pom-poms and plaid! Spikes and spots! Leopard and lace! Tie-dye and tutus! One day she does just that and asserts her very own unique style. 

 

About the book I Do Not Like That Name: 

What’s in a name? In the companion to I Do Not Like Al’s Hat, Sophie and Herb send away for an elephant to be their new friend. When he arrives in the mail without a name, it’s up to them to find the perfect moniker for their giant pal. This funny picture book about friendship, identity, and why we have names is illustrated with bright collage art and a healthy dose of humor.

Erin McGill was born and raised in New York. She loves animals, but after realizing that becoming a zoologist required too much science, she decided she would rather draw them. She received a BFA in illustration from Pratt Institute. Since graduating, Erin created Wallcojr Designs, and she makes her animal artwork into products for greeting cards, toys, and wearable art. She is the author-illustrator of I Do Not Like Al’s Hat.
