Frogs! Boots! Frogs on boots! And it's a lovely story about the all-too-familiar experience for most parents when their child focuses on their favorite item of clothing or shoes. And they wear that item or those shoes every single day!

I don't think kids are the only ones either. As an adult, I find myself getting very attached to certain sweaters. And boots? Hello? That is my always favorite thing!

Eliza Berkowitz at Sterling has bought world rights to Jill Esbaum's Frog Boots, a picture book about a boy who falls in love with a pair of frog-covered boots and then learns that they were meant for girls. Joshua Heinsz will illustrate; Christina Pulles will edit. Publication is set for fall 2019; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author, and Alex Gehringer at the Bright Agency represented the illustrator.

We can't wait for fall 2019! This one is going to be a beloved classic.

Congratulations, Jill and Joshua! We are so excited to see your talents shine with this book.

—Tricia

Gather around, my gentle readers! It's time to celebrate a brand new book that is soon to be winging its way into the world. From the bestselling, beloved author Pat Zietlow Miller—can we ever get enough of her books? we cannot!—comes a glorious new read-aloud adventure. Here is the deal announcement:

New York Times-bestselling author Pat Zietlow Miller's IN OUR GARDEN, a classroom tale about students who create a vegetable garden on their school's rooftop, illustrated by Melissa Crowton, to Stephanie Pitts at Putnam Children's, for publication in Spring 2021, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at the Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author and Kirsten Hall at Catbird Productions for the illustrator.

This book is sure to be another modern classic, and I for one can't wait to see the finished product. Shall we hold a garden party to celebrate? I'll bring the scones!

Huge congratulations to Pat!
