"Emotionally charged and eloquently rendered in words and art, this picture book is worth owning and cherishing." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"A beautiful and important book about climate change featuring those who are most affected by it." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Sometimes, you're having a regular old day and the phone rings and it's an offer on a manuscript you sent out to editors. Other times, you're having a busy day of meetings in New York and the phone rings, and you stand in the lobby of the Flatiron Building as an editor describes a project she wants one of your clients to write. And sometimes—no, make that RARELY—that project has a huge name attached to it.
Thus do we come to the announcement of Phil Bildner's forthcoming picture book, DEREK JETER PRESENTS: NIGHT AT THE STADIUM, which will be published under the auspices of Jeter Publishing, with Fiona Simpson of Aladdin/Simon & Schuster editing and debut illustrator Tom Booth providing art, in spring 2016. It's been a whirlwind, folks!
This is going to be one terrific addition to Phil's roster of sports-related titles. And now that the contracts are signed, both Phil and I are proud owners of a Derek Jeter autograph!
