Whoosh!

Whoosh!
Chris Barton

Chris Barton's nonfiction is praised far and wide, and when he tackles science topics, it tips into full-on fun. (See THE DAY-GLO BROTHERS and his most recent book, WHOOSH!, released just a couple of weeks ago: The starred reviews from Kirkus and PW for the latter include the words "delightful" and "playful," as well as "inspiring" and "necessary.")

So when he tackles a science topic that most people have never heard of or thought about, look out. Prepare to be dazzled with stories about World War I, torpedoes, ships, and camouflage. And prepare to be dazzled by how debut picture book illustrator Victo Ngai shows us how it all looks!

DAZZLE SHIPS is scheduled to come out the fall of next year, believe it or not, thanks to the fantastic team at Lerner, led by Carol Hinz.

Congratulations, Chris!

...a Panda Problem, that is. That's the title of the book in Deborah Underwood's latest new deal: THE PANDA PROBLEM. (And yes, there was just another D.U. deal announced last week! She's on a roll!)

THE PANDA PROBLEM is a hilarious meta story in which the protagonist, Panda, doesn't have a problem. Which is a problem, because without a problem, there is no story. Got it? Good!

This one was acquired by the fantastic Jessica Garrison at Dial, who also publishes Deborah's CAT books and her forthcoming WALRUS 1-2-3, which will release next summer.

Congratulations AGAIN, Deborah!
