"Funny and astute, the volume represents five minutes well spent." —Publishers Weekly
In this delightful Christmas picture book, Jack’s substitute teacher, Mr. Clausen, looks a whole lot like Santa Claus—could he really be Santa?
"With nods to archaeological adventures like Indiana Jones, Hannah’s journey features intermittent excitement and dips into intriguing myths and history." —Kirkus Reviews
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!
