Readers far and wide have fallen in love with Anna Staniszewski's tween characters—THE DIRT DIARY series has been rocking the shelves, with its most recent third installment, THE GOSSIP FILE, pubbing this year; as well as her newest series SWITCHED AT FIRST KISS: I'M WITH CUPID! launching this summer.
Today I'm delighted to announce an entirely new book deal—taking Anna's trademark adorably quirky tween characters out to sea . . . literally! ONCE UPON A CRUISE tells the story of twelve-year-old Aislynn, who gets a job aboard a Fairy Tale cruise ship, but quickly finds that her magical vacation is turning into a titanic mess. Can she pull things together in time to save the day?
ONCE UPON A CRUISE has sold to Erin Black at Scholastic, and I have a feeling this isn't the last we're going to be seeing of Aislynn and her friends! Stay turned for a fall 2016 sail date.
Huge congrats, Anna!
