Matthew McElligott: Children's book author/illustrator

“Of course, who isn't a Maurice Sendak fan. Where the Wild Things Are is the classic of picture book literature. I do a whole thing with my students just sort of deconstructing that book and how it's designed and the relative size of the pictures on each page and how they match the story arc that Sendak is telling."

Matthew McElligott


An Albany Book Festival featured event presented by the NYS Writers Institute


Matthew McElligott is the author of several books for children, including The Mad Scientist Academy and Benjamin Franklinstein series. His newest picture book DO NOT EAT THE GAME!, released in May, is told through a game board and is the perfect read-along for family game nights. He is a professor and chair of the Art + Design Department at Sage College of Albany.
