We are so pleased to announce yet another deal that has been brewing for quite some time: Another picture book for Mary Lyn Ray, whose Marla-Frazee-illustrated Stars debuts this fall from Beach Lane Books/S&S. The new one is called The Dog Who Didn't Like Thunder, and, in Mary Lyn's trademark subtly humorous way, it reveals the way a child comforts his brave dog during a big storm. The acquiring editor is the lovely Kelsey Skea of Disney-Hyperion Books.
The illustrator who will be bringing out all of this humor and bringing the characters to life is Steven Salerno, whose dogs are so delightful in Bebe and Pantaloon—and, more recently our own Audrey Vernick's Brothers at Bat, which debuts in spring of next year with Clarion. When I saw little Pitch, the dog in Audrey's book, I fell in love, so I am especially delighted!
Congratulations, Mary Lyn!
