This one has been a long time in the Shush Drawer, so I'm extra-delighted to pull it out today for general inspection and admiration. Here's the deal announcement that is going up on the interwebz today:
Diane Mullen's ONE LITTLE LOT, a joyous celebration of life in an inner city neighborhood by way of developing a neighborhood garden, again to Julie Bliven at Charlesbridge, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency (World).
It's a lovely, warm, and celebratory text that is going to make an amazing picture book once it's paired up with the perfect illustrator. I couldn't be happier for Diane—and for us who will soon get to enjoy this book. Congratulations!!
