If there is one question that comes to every one of us, sooner or later in our lives, it is this one: WHAT do you do when your alligator just won't go to sleep?
Gentle readers, I am thrilled to say that you need wonder no more—or, at least, you only have to wonder until spring 2021 (gulp). Here is the exciting new deal announcement for our own Rebecca Van Slyke!
Kate Jacobs at Roaring Brook has acquired Goodnight, Alligator!, a picture book written by Lexie the Word Wrangler author Rebecca Van Slyke, and to be illustrated by Mike Boldt. It tells the story of a spirited young character, who is full of very alligator-specific reasons why she absolutely cannot be expected to go to bed. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author and Jennifer Rofe at Andrea Brown Literary Agency represented the illustrator in a deal for World rights. Publication is expected in spring 2021.
I am so excited for this zany and bounce-filled book, and I know you will be too.
Huge congratulations, Rebecca!!
