Savvy book-watchers of the Internet will already be alert to the wonder that is Maria Gianferrari's COYOTE MOON, a gorgeous ode to the suburban coyote, with breathtaking illustrations by Bagram Ibatoulline. Forthcoming in July this year, the book has already been earmarked as a Junior Library Guild selection, and is causing much buzz amongst book- and nature-appreciators alike!
A companion book is already forthcoming next year, HIGHWAY HAWKS, with illustrations by Brian Floca, but—believe it or not, with how I'm going on—neither of those books are what I'm here to talk about today. Talk on then, you say? Don't mind if I do.
Early reception to these titles has been so good that Roaring Brook editor Emily Feinberg has just snapped up a brand new, third title: A HOME FOR BOBCAT, again seeking out a suburban predator, this time following a young bobcat searching for a home. Even better? BOBCAT will be once again illustrated by the amazingly talented Bagram Ibatoulline.
Hugs congrats to Maria and all on this amazing forthcoming book!
