"A hilarious book for animal lovers and risk takers everywhere! Brian McCann introduces us to Wannabe Farms, and we never want to leave." - Amy Poehler

From acclaimed comedy writer Brian McCann comes Wannabe Farms, the insanely funny, rhyming collection of stories that asks the question: What do farmyard animals really want to do with their lives? Now in paperback!

Welcome to Wannabe Farms, a farmyard where the animals like to wonder and dream, plot and scheme, and definitely not act how they're supposed to. In rhyming verse, Brian McCann (writer for Conan O'Brien) shows us what happens when cows want to drive, pigs dream of being sophisticates, and sheep take their hairstyles into their own hands (well, hooves). Together, what emerges is a delightful, hysterical romp through the farmyard, as animals discover the place where dreams meet their limits, and the power of adjusted expectations.

With hilarious two-color illustrations on every spread, this collection of stories brings Shel Silverstein and Old MacDonald together in a way readers young and old have never seen before!

About the Author

Brian McCann is a winner of the primetime Emmy Award and six Writer's Guild Awards for outstanding comedy writing. But those things aren't important to him. He just put those at the top of this paragraph because he thought you might say, "That's interesting. Maybe this book will be funny."

Brian worked in the world of late-night comedy television for over twenty years as a writer, performer, producer, and show creator until one day he was asked if he would ever consider working in children's programming. Having just become a father for the second time, he jumped at the idea of creating something positive and long-lasting for kids, and he has never looked back.

Wannabe Farms is Brian's debut into the world of being an author, and he thinks the word author sounds pretty impressive. He is extremely excited to be teaming with artist Meghan Lands to bring his stories to life.

When not writing for television, or books, or about himself for a bio, Brian lives in New York with his wife and young son, and they are always excited when his college-aged daughter comes home.

Meghan Lands is an illustrator, cartoonist, and storyboard artist based in Montreal, Canada. Her client list includes Owl Magazine, Annick Press, The Nib, Narratively, and more. Her comic, Rejected Anthology Submission, was shortlisted for the 2016 Slate Cartoonist Studio Prize. She loves to draw people and animals and bugs.
