Things are hopping along for writer Jean Reidy--her Too Purpley!, illustrated by Genevieve Leloup and published in the U.S. and U.K. (where the title is the slightly different Too Purply!) by Bloomsbury, hit all the right marks in January, featured in Target and on the picture book wall at Barnes and Noble, beloved by independent booksellers, reviewed in Parenting magazine, and universally praised. The follow-up, Too Pickley!, just recently made its way into the world and great reviews are starting to roll in. So what better time to get a third book going?
We are very pleased to announce that the team that created the first two books will be reunited for Too Princessy! This time the fussy toddler is searching for something just-right to play with. (The first two books involved searches for something pleasing to wear and to eat, respectively). The acquiring editor in the U.S. is Michelle Nagler; Michele Manasse represents Genevieve Leloup. Jean also has two picture books forthcoming with Disney-Hyperion.
