Bob, Not Bob

Bob, Not Bob
Audrey Vernick
Liz Garton Scanlon

Liz Garton Scanlon and Audrey Vernick, the dynamite team that brought you BOB, NOT BOB and the forthcoming DEAR SUBSTITUTE, have done it again! They have once again tapped into the universal by contemplating the passage of time. FIVE MINUTES IS A LOT OF TIME (NO IT'S NOT) (YES IT IS) asks readers to consider: How long, really, is five minutes?

If you're waiting for the library to open? FOREVER.

If you're reading a book under the covers? NOT LONG ENOUGH!

If you're waiting for your birthday party to start? ARGH!

You get the idea!

Once again they've been matched with a fabulous illustrator. BOB had Matthew Cordell; SUBSTITUTE has Chris Raschka; FIVE MINUTES has Olivier Tallec (repped by Kirsten Hall of Catbird Productions)—and it also has Stephanie Pitts of Putnam editing, after she bought the text and one other untitled picture book—at auction!

Huge congratulations, Audrey and Liz!

All Four Stars

All Four Stars
Tara Dairman

Tara Dairman is widely known as the beloved author of the middle-grade foodie series beginning with ALL FOUR STARS, as well as her most recent quirky mystery, THE GREAT HIBERNATION. But today I'm delighted to announce Tara's foray into something new and different—picture books!

Here's the deal announcement for a brand new, gorgeous book:

ALL FOUR STARS and THE GREAT HIBERNATION author Tara Dairman's debut picture book, DESERT GIRL, MONSOON BOY, about a boy and girl who flee opposite environments in India and meet in a safe, welcoming place, with illustrations by Archana Sreenivasan, to Susan Kochan at Putnam, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author and Stephanie Fretwell-Hill at Red Fox Literary for the illustrator (World).

The story has its origin in Tara's own travels to remote parts of the world, and is a celebration of place and tradition and coming together despite obstacles. I for one cannot wait to see it in finished form.

Congratulations, Tara!
