"Put in the hands of your aspiring scientists and readers with insatiable curiosity."— School Library Journal, starred review
Nelson's latest addition to her series of food-focused first-crush titles contains mouthwatering descriptions along with recipes at the end of the book... Age-appropriate romance with a focus on baking."—Kirkus
"This is a lively, emotionally resonant celebration of rocks as well as humans' ways of connecting with and learning about the natural world."—Publishers Weekly
And, really, who wouldn't want to learn?! After all, we're talking about Tara Lazar, superstar picture book author of such knee-slapping hits as 7 Ate 9, The Monstore, Little Red Gliding Hood, and Normal Norman. (If any of these titles are not already on your bookshelf, make sure to remedy this posthaste!)
But what about those leprechauns? Fear not, gentle readers! All critter-trapping secrets will be fully revealed; though not, I'm afraid, until winter 2020. Can we stand to wait that long? Alas, we must.
Here is the deal announcement with the details:
7 ATE 9 and THE MONSTORE author Tara Lazar's FOUR WAYS TO TRAP A LEPRECHAUN, a curious girl's quest to prove that leprechauns are real, with illustrations by Vivienne To, to Tamar Mays at Harper Children's, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary for the author and Justin Rucker at Shannon Associates for the illustrator (World).
Huge congrats on this awesome new book deal, Tara!
