From chapter books starring rainbow-barfing unicorns to coffee table books showcasing zombies of a more terrifying nature, things can get weird when Matthew K. Manning isn't writing about super-heroes. He has written numerous art books, guidebooks, chapter books, and children's books, and has tackled subjects as diverse as heroic drone pilots in his four-book series Drone Academy for Capstone, to a brief history on semi-fictional dinosaurs in his book Welcome to Jurassic World for Running Press.
Artemis Fowl: How to be an L.E.P. Recon
A tie-in to the 2020 Disney film, How to be a L.E.P. Recon is not just a guide to the tools of the trade of the Lower Elements Police, it also features several original short stories set in this fascinating world of fairies and trolls. Also available in audiobook format. For the younger Artemis Fowl fan, Manning also adapted the 2020 film in the children's book Artemis Fowl: A Fowl Adventure.
Xander and the Rainbow-Barfing Unicorns
This six-volume series published by Capstone tells the tale of an ordinary kid named Xander who stumbles on three undead refugees from the talking pony world of Pegasia. And if Xander doesn't feed his new friends a steady diet of garbage, these unicorns... well, they barf rainbows. (It's right there in the title, you guys. You should have seen that coming.) Written by Manning and illustrated by Joey Ellis.
