So excited to celebrate Bobbie and Diobelle’s beautiful book finally. With Bobbie’s lovely words and Diobelle’s beautiful and heartfelt illustrations, this book is one to watch for. I’m so happy to announce this deal for Bobbie and know it is just the beginning. 

Sarah Rockett at Sleeping Bear Press has bought world rights to Dancing the Tinikling by Bobbie Peyton (l.), illustrated by Diobelle Cerna, a picture book about a boy learning the traditional Philippine tinikling, where dancers leap between poles tapping and clapping at their feet. The boy compares the feeling to dancing between two cultures. Publication is slated for fall 2023; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author, and Christine Hong at Astound US represented the illustrator. 

Congratulations, Bobbie!

A new book deal for Megan Wagner Lloyd is always an exciting thing! This prolific author has published everything from picture books (FINDING WILD), to middle-grade novels (HAVEN: THE STORY OF A CAT), to graphic novels (ALLERGIC), and more. Today, we are here to celebrate yet another fun and fresh writerly direction. Want to know more? Read on . . .

Erinn Pascal at Andrews McMeel has acquired World rights to Megan Wagner Lloyd’s THE KIDS’ CREATIVE WRITING PLAYBOOK, to be illustrated by Madeline Garcia. This interactive workbook will inspire creativity, expand on what creative writing can be, and help encourage kids to focus less on creating “perfect” work and just have a blast with words, art, and storytelling. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author, and the illustrator represented herself. The book will publish in Summer 2023.

Just think: this time next summer, you and/or any budding young writers in your life could be sitting down with a freshly-sharpened pencil and this exciting, inspiring book of writerly learning and fun. What more can I say? Mark your book-release calendars today!

Huge congratulations, Megan!
