“Raising Monarchs” is not about the duties of Kate Middleton’s nanny — it’s about butterflies!

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released author Sue Fox McGovern’s self-help book “Raising Monarchs – Caring for One of God’s Graceful Creatures.”

rm_fcAbout the Book:
Have you ever wondered how to raise monarch butterflies?  Author and butterfly farmer Sue Fox McGovern takes you through all of the steps from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. All of this can be done in your own backyard.

What others are saying:
Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to learn about and witness the life cycle of the butterfly. This has been an amazing experience. I just wanted to share with you the pictures we took of Eduardo, my butterfly. —John

Just wanted to say thank you again for the informational evening in your yard on butterflies. So many things one takes for granted in this world and you brought to my attention amazing things about butterflies—especially the monarch. I am definitely going to try and create a habitat in my yard. My grandson is taking good care of his caterpillar. —Mary Ellen

I’d just like to thank you again for taking the time and effort to teach us about butterflies on my birthday weekend. What they represent in my life is incredibly meaningful, and the surprise of getting to witness and learn about them was something that has immediately gone down in my list of favorite memories of my entire life. —Marie

Julianna came home from school today and said the science teacher thought it would be great if Julianna brought in a caterpillar for the class to watch its transformation. Again, thanks for engaging Julianna in this process! —Christine

My caterpillar is big and beautiful, but I guess unless he decides to start the change tonight I will need to grab more milkweed from you. Thanks for this fun experience. I have a friend in her 80s who would really enjoy this. —Denise

Henry (Henrietta) the monarch butterfly has left us! Thank you for that experience. I’ve been talking about it all weekend. —Chris

Father & son duo Mike & Ethan Sgrignoli are one Dinorific pair!

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Children’s author Mike Sgrignoli and his son Ethan, the illustrator, have signed with Sunbury Press to publish their Dinorific Poetry series.  The Mechanicsburg publisher of trade paperback and eBooks has reissued the first of two volumes, to be followed by a third currently in the works.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
dp1_fc“Dinorific Poetry Volume 1: Stories of Ancient Animals Created by a Father and Son” features ten delightful poetic stories conceived by Michael coupled with twenty-two of Ethan’s imaginative watercolors. You’ll meet Diplodocus, Dimetrodon, Styracosaurus, Pachycephalosaur and a host of other unique and admittedly obscure dinosaurs. There’s even a story about where the skull of a Plesiosaur got mistakenly placed. Dig in!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR:
The Sgrignolis have risen to local acclaim thanks to their positive message and appearances at local schools, bookstores, childcare centers and other venues.

Michael is a poet, musician, forward-thinking, public-speaking, rugged individualist who strives to be the best darn daddy ever while balancing a full time job. Ethan is a fun-loving, imaginative, animal lover who (his father believes) IS the best darn son ever. This father/son literary project has provided the setting to engender greater mutual respect and has delivered an even more precious gift: more time spent together.
