"A provocative illumination of the nooks and crannies of a document that citizens have come to take for granted." - Kirkus
"...this is a grand addition to any library, gently demonstrating how we find friends where we least expect to." - SLJ
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!
