We all love animals, but sometimes, animals are just a bit too much in what they eat, where they live, and how the defend themselves. Although, I’m sure they think the same about us from time to time.

Melissa has written an amazing text and teamed up with the one and only National Geographic to make this a book for all ages. 

Shelby Lees at National Geographic has acquired Ick! Delightfully Disgusting Animal Dinners, Dwellings, and Defensesby Melissa Stewart, a middle grade nonfiction title that explores the incredibly icky ways animals find food, make their homes, and defend themselves from predators. Publication is slated for June 2020; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary sold World rights on behalf of the author. 

ICK comes your way in June! Get ready!

Congratulations, Melissa!
