"Emotionally charged and eloquently rendered in words and art, this picture book is worth owning and cherishing." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Discover the inspiring story of Senator Elizabeth Warren and her lifelong commitment to working hard and advocating for equality in this compelling and accessible picture book biography.
This news actually officially posted up last week, but I would be remiss in not drawing official notice to it here in EMLA-land! Hot on the heels of his newest gorgeous picture book release, JUST RIGHT: THE SEARCH FOR THE GOLDILOCKS PLANET, we have a fantastic and charming new deal to announce for author Curtis Manley.
Here is the official deal announcement:
Emily Feinberg at Roaring Brook Press has acquired world rights to Curtis Manley’s THE RESCUER OF TINY CREATURES, illustrated by Lucy Ruth Cummins. This picture book follows a girl who prides herself in rescuing imperiled insects and encourages her classmates to do the same. Publication is planned for Spring 2021. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author, and Emily van Beek at Folio Jr. / Folio Literary Management represented the illustrator.
With all the charm and wit and warmth that characterizes a Curtis Manley picture book, this gem-to-be is one you won’t want to miss.
Hooray and congrats, Curtis!
