"A joyful thing to behold. Set in Victorian England, this mystery gleefully overturns sexist norms and celebrates independent women of intellect, with Myrtle Hardcastle leading the charge."
—Booklist, starred review
"Humor and wit make the narrative sparkle, and, happily, Myrtle is as irrepressible as ever.”
Nancy’s text has been one of my priorities to sell for the past few years and we nearly got it placed a few times, but we’re so happy to announce that it has finally found a home and it has found the right home!
Nina Gruener at Cameron Kids has bought world rights to Applesauce Is Fun to Wear by Nancy Raines Day (l.), illustrated by Jane Massey, a picture book about a messy baby who discovers that wearing one's food is much more fun than eating it. Publication is slated for spring 2021; Tricia Lawrence at the Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author, and the illustrator represented herself.
Nancy and I are so delighted by the love Cameron Kids has given to the text and we cannot wait to see what the brilliant illustrator Jane Massey does with such a fun subject matter! Stay tuned, folks, this is going to be an instant classic. Get ready parents, your kids will all be wearing applesauce coming in 2021!
