Mylisa Larsen is one of those author gems who writes ably in all kinds of formats and with all kinds of tones, but one of my favorite things that she does is combine a matter-of-fact sweetness with empowerment. Her latest picture book deal is just that kind of project, with a bit of STEM information thrown in, because she’s just that versatile!
Andrea Welch at S&S/Beach Lane has acquired ALL OF THOSE BABIES by Mylisa Larsen, illustrated by Stephanie Laberis, a picture book that celebrates the fact that all animals start as babies, and then all babies—including humans—grow and grow and grow, for publication in spring 2024. Erin Murphy of Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author and Anne Moore Armstrong at the Bright Agency represented the illustrator in the deal for world rights.
I am so excited to see this one come together. Huge congratulations, Mylisa!
