Hello, my name is Melanie Burgess. I am from Keyser WV and I am the author and illustrator of the new award winning children's book called Stinky Owl.
I would like to tell you about my book. My book features the birds of prey from the Rocky Gap State Park aviary and the illustrations are from the park's campground. The book is centered around the Great Horned Owl. Great Horned Owls are one of the few birds of prey that regularly eat skunks. This owl enjoys eating skunks so much that he smells bad and has no friends and is lonely and sad.
The book has true facts about each bird of prey in the story along with actual pictures of the birds with additional facts at the end of the book. This story is educational and has a cute story line.
The book launched on June 6th, 2018 and has already won three awards. It won an honorable mention for the best children's book of the year at the San Francisco book festival and the Paris France book festival. The most recent award is a silver medal from Mom's choice awards for the best children's picture book of the year.
