So. Both you and the youngsters in your life have read and loved-to-bits Pat Zietlow Miller's epic debut picture book, SOPHIE'S SQUASH. You've swooned over her gorgeous modern classic, WHEREVER YOU GO. And her newest release, SHARING THE BREAD (just out last month!) already has prize of place on your Best Loved shelf.
What dreams does a picture book lover have yet to dream?
I'm so glad you asked! Because today I am thrilled to announce a brand new deal that will reunite Pat Zietlow Miller with her WHEREVER YOU GO illustrator, NYT bestseller Eliza Wheeler. Here is the deal announcement from Publishers Weekly:
SOPHIE'S SQUASH and WHEREVER YOU GO author Pat Zietlow Miller and illustrator of WHEREVER YOU GO and the bestselling MISS MAPLE'S SEEDS Eliza Wheeler's BRAVE, a celebration of the many steps that lead to courage, in things both great and small, to Leslie Shumate at Little Brown Books for Young Readers for publication in Spring 2019, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author and Jennifer Rofé at Andrea Brown Literary Agency for the illustrator (World).
Now, I realize I'm asking for a lot of patience, because—yes, the release date release is (gasp) nearly four years away. But need I say that it will be worth waiting for? I do not. Mark your calendars accordingly.
Hooray and huge congrats, Pat!
