Mary McFann has a 2-year-old niece who is her heart and soul. She loves hearing about her niece’s antics. Early one morning, when McFann heard that her niece was missing from her room but was found bouncing on her trampoline and that her new obsession was unicorns, McFann felt inspired to write a poem. One thing led to another, and the book “Ellie the Bouncing Unicorn” (published by AuthorHouse) was born.

The book is about Ellie, a unicorn who loves bouncing on her trampoline. In fact, it is her favorite thing. Readers are invited to follow Ellie throughout her day, as she does more of her favorite things.

“Besides the pictures, the words in the book invoke imagery, and Ellie’s daily activities are typical of the young reader,” McFann says. “While many stories have a moral, this book is meant just to be jovial and carefree in nature. It emotes a light and fun feeling, and kids are fascinated with the images and sequence of events.”

McFann hopes young readers will not only enjoy the story, but also learn to love the written word and the varied ways it can be expressed. “Have fun being young, and do the things you enjoy doing!” she adds. For more details about the book, please visit
