DRAGONS RULE! Coming Your Way in 2016

DRAGONS RULE! At least in Courtney Pippin-Mathur's world. It's time to celebrate the news of her latest picture book. As author and illustrator, Courtney's idea of friendship between dragons and princesses arrives at its latest nexus. What if princesses and dragons were always friends? What if there was only a need for more flowers and fewer knights?

Courtney's manuscript is amazing, with hilarious twists and turns and most of all, the celebration of friendship between those who would have been enemies. She worked so hard on this one and waited a long time and so this is an extra-special celebration!

Jeffrey Salane at Little Simon has signed up author/illustrator Courtney Pippin-Mathur's next picture book, Dragons Rule! The book features a brave dragon who, with the help of two erstwhile princesses, foils the attempts of an heroic knight, all while celebrating unlikely friendship in their cliched world. Publication is scheduled for summer 2016; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author for world rights.

Congratulations, Courtney!
