Beth Neely and Don Rantz are the Illustrators of Don't Call Me Pig and Lizards for Lunch. Beth Neely and Don Rantz met in Flagstaff, Arizona at Northern Arizona University. Both studied Fine Art.

They now live and work in a small historical bungalow in Prescott, Arizona. They share the house with their two cats and backyard menagerie of raccoons, skunks and coyotes. Members of a small herd of javelinas are frequent visitors. One thing is for certain, Beth and Don will never call them pigs!

    Fantastic story and illustrations

    Few books are both so accurate AND entertaining. The illustrations in this text are marvelous - a wonderful depiction of the beauty and mystery of the southwest. My kids adore the story, and we read it over and over and over again.
