29 Myths on the Swinster Pharmacy
McSweeney’s McMullens, 2014
Hardcover, 32 pages, $14.95

Illustration faculty member Lisa Brown illustrated and designed this picture book that collects 29 “myths” about a small-town pharmacy, delivered by a young pair of siblings who are obsessed with this mysterious establishment. Booklist says: “Brown paints the pharmacy a drab gray that permeates the rest of the story like a dense fog, and her children, dressed in yellow, orange, and red, stand out against the inky obscurity like the incisive investigators they are.”
