People Are Wild

Perfect Picture Book Friday

I love a story that turns a concept upside down. And that’s what People Are Wild (Alfred A. Knopf, 2022) by Margaux Meganck does. Instead of the story being told from a child looking at animals, the animals are looking at people.

Words and art are a great match. It’s hard to choose a favorite spread because I loved them so much. I also like the variety of animals and how there is more information about them after the story ends. It’s nice to see diversity in the human characters too.

This is Margaux’s first picture book she has illustrated and written. Previously, she illustrated Kathy Wolff’s All We Need.

  1. Fantastic concept. I could swear my cats find us very amusing to look at. They stare in what feels like disbelief at some of our oddities.

  2. What a lovely review of PEOPLE ARE WILD Susan! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm, and the help getting the word out about my author/illustrator debut!
