"An important, positive conservation message, and a perfect nonfiction addition to preschool story time or a beginning informational picture book collection." - SLJ, starred review
"Humor and wit make the narrative sparkle, and, happily, Myrtle is as irrepressible as ever.”
If there's anything better than a debut book sale, it might have to be: a debut book sale, in a two-book deal, at auction!
There are some manuscripts which you pick up and right on that first page you think to yourself, "Yes! This book has got it!" Such was the case with Adam Shaughnessy's fabulous middle-grade adventure, about a couple of New England kids who become mixed up in the affairs of gods and mythical creatures from Norse mythology. What happens next? Oh, wouldn't you like to know!
When I sent this project out on submission just a few short weeks ago, we were thrilled at the very quick positive energy it brought about—all of which culminated in an exciting auction. I am thrilled to announce today that THE ENTIRELY TRUE STORY OF THE UNBELIEVABLE FIB (and its sequel) has found its perfect home with the fabulous Elise Howard of Algonquin. Things are settling into a place for a tentative fall 2015 release, so you won't have to wait too much longer to read this incredible book.
