Kids Can Press, a Canadian children’s book publisher, announced an upcoming children’s book series based on the

PBS Kids

series “Elinor Wonders Why. In the fall, Kids Can Press will introduce the first two books in a graphic novel series based on episodes of the program, to be co-authored by the show’s co-creators, Jorge Cham and Daniel Whiteson: “Elinor Wonders Why: Hiding in Plain Sight” and “Elinor Wonders Why: Forest Giants.”  

Two books will follow in the spring of 2023: “Elinor Wonders Why: Bugging Out” and “Elinor Wonders Why: How to Carry a Cupcake.”  

“We instantly fell in love with Elinor and knew that the series concept was a perfect fit for us,” says Lisa Lyons Johnston, president, publisher, Kids Can Press. “With her curious nature and can-do attitude, Elinor and the cast of other equally inquisitive characters exemplify the importance of STEM learning in each episode, and the books will be a wonderful addition to the many award-winning science-based books for all ages that parents

and teachers expect from Kids Can Press.” 

“We are very excited to partner with Kids Can Press to bring Elinor’s wonder and curiosity to kids and families with this series of graphic novels,” says Jorge Cham, co-creator, “Elinor Wonders Why.” “Kids Can Press has a long and storied history publishing great children's books and media, and they are in the leading edge in making this format accessible to beginning readers and soon-to-be little scientists. Graphic novels are a perfect way to bring Elinor's curious world and fun characters to life on the page.”
