"With nods to archaeological adventures like Indiana Jones, Hannah’s journey features intermittent excitement and dips into intriguing myths and history." —Kirkus Reviews
In this delightful Christmas picture book, Jack’s substitute teacher, Mr. Clausen, looks a whole lot like Santa Claus—could he really be Santa?
"An engaging, inspiring biography of an important figure in the history of science." - SLJ, STARRED
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!
