There are some books that warm your heart just as soon as you read them; where you can immediately see those images in your mind's eye; where you know you're being treated to something special. Well, I have something very special to announce today: a brand-new deal for a most wonderful of texts—Sarvinder Naberhaus's LINES.
This deceptively simple story starts out with a line, which makes a shape, which makes a town, and which all gradually comes together in a joyous celebration of our own great world—and beyond! Targeting the youngest of readers, this is a story that has a readership far beyond that, and which I believe is going to be around a long, long time.
So it's with exceptional joy that I share the news of LINES's acquisition: Hannah Lambert at Little Simon has fallen hard for this story, and it is headed toward a Fall 2017 pub date. Be on the lookout for this wonderful book soon to come!
Warm congratulations, Sarvinder!
