"Staniszewski works tween humor very well, and if this is any indication, readers are in for a wild and hilarious ride from upcoming installments in the Switched at First Kiss series." ~ Booklist. July Release.
"A gently adventurous and luxuriously detailed romp." ~ Kirkus Reviews. July release.
Sometimes, you're having a regular old day and the phone rings and it's an offer on a manuscript you sent out to editors. Other times, you're having a busy day of meetings in New York and the phone rings, and you stand in the lobby of the Flatiron Building as an editor describes a project she wants one of your clients to write. And sometimes—no, make that RARELY—that project has a huge name attached to it.
Thus do we come to the announcement of Phil Bildner's forthcoming picture book, DEREK JETER PRESENTS: NIGHT AT THE STADIUM, which will be published under the auspices of Jeter Publishing, with Fiona Simpson of Aladdin/Simon & Schuster editing and debut illustrator Tom Booth providing art, in spring 2016. It's been a whirlwind, folks!
This is going to be one terrific addition to Phil's roster of sports-related titles. And now that the contracts are signed, both Phil and I are proud owners of a Derek Jeter autograph!
