Melissa Guion

Melissa Guion grew up in West Caldwell, NJ, and Baltimore, MD. Melissa has been a dishwasher, a photographer, a Macy’s sales clerk and a Vice President. She was once paid $10 to remove a dead possum from the garage of a US Supreme Court nominee. She is relieved to now be an author/illustrator.

Her debut picture book BABY PENGUINS EVERYWHERE! was selected for the 2012 Original Art exhibition at the Society of Illustrators.
Learn about Melissa on her website.


  1. Her dot is beautiful! How old was she when she removed the dead possum? Sounds like she was underpaid! :)

  2. Hi Mia. I worked as a gardener the summer I turned nineteen. One day when I showed up the family offered me an extra $10 if I'd deal with the carcass. I'm not very squeamish, and $10 bought a lot of pizza back then, so I went for it.

  3. Yay, Baltimore! Also, this is one of the most beautiful celebri-dots I have seen yet. Just... wow!

    1. Charm City! Thanks Matthew, I was inspired.
