So excited to celebrate Bobbie and Diobelle’s beautiful book finally. With Bobbie’s lovely words and Diobelle’s beautiful and heartfelt illustrations, this book is one to watch for. I’m so happy to announce this deal for Bobbie and know it is just the beginning.
Sarah Rockett at Sleeping Bear Press has bought world rights to Dancing the Tinikling by Bobbie Peyton (l.), illustrated by Diobelle Cerna, a picture book about a boy learning the traditional Philippine tinikling, where dancers leap between poles tapping and clapping at their feet. The boy compares the feeling to dancing between two cultures. Publication is slated for fall 2023; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author, and Christine Hong at Astound US represented the illustrator.
