Luke Reynolds Is Ready to BLAST-OFF!
Break These Rules: 35 YA Authors on Speaking Up, Standing Out, and Being Yourself
Luke Reynolds

That Luke Reynolds! He's always got something new up his sleeve, hasn't he?

Last year saw the release of his critically acclaimed anthology collection, BREAK THESE RULES. He's got two new middle-grade books on their way: THE LOONEY EXPERIMENT, and HOW TO SURVIVE MIDDLE SCHOOL.

And now, Luke is turning his attention to the small set, in—what else?—a picture book. BEDTIME BLAST-OFF brings an imaginative twist to the time-honored bedtime ritual, where a young son and his father get into all sorts of zany play as they oh-so-slowly make their way toward bed. The book was acquired by the lovely Orli Zuravicky at Scholastic, and has already been attached to the fabulous illustrator Mike Yamada.

This is sure to be a mustn't-miss project, so mark your calendars for spring 2016!

Congratulations, Luke!
