It’s no secret that one of the things I enjoy most in the world is language, and in particular, puns and wordplay. So you may not be at all surprised to read this delightful deal announcement for a fantastic new picture book, written by author extraordinaire Rebecca Van Slyke:

 Nancy Paulsen at Nancy Paulsen Books/Penguin has acquired World rights to Rebecca Van Slyke’s new picture book, THE POWER OF YETI, with illustrations by G. Brian Karas, about a child whose frustrated inability to keep up with the bigger kids around him gets a boost by a new circle of friends, including a very special YETI! The deal was managed by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary agency for the author, and the illustrator represented himself. The book will be published Spring 2024.

Thoroughly owning that line between kid-friendly and invaluable life advice, this new picture book is one you won’t want to miss. Huge congratulations, Rebecca and team!

Kersten Hamilton’s RED TRUCK, illustrated by Valeria Petrone, is the vehicle that just keeps going. It’s edging up to a quarter million copies sold, and has spawned three published companion books: YELLOW COPTER, BLUE BOAT, and just out this fall, GREEN TRACTOR, an adorable story set at harvest time, in which helpful kids and a helpful tractor get the farm ready for hayrides, pumpkin races, and more!

ORANGE EXCAVATOR is also underway, and now we’re adding MERRY CHRISTMAS, RED TRACTOR! to the mix for fall 2023! Meriam Metoui at Viking just signed this one up and we can’t wait!

Huge congratulations, Kersten!

—Erin
