What do you take when you combine a science nerd with a desire to be popular? This is the question posed by the protagonist of Anna Staniszewski’s latest madcap school story. Anna is known for her side-splitting stories of everyday mayhem and misshaps – and this new story is deliciously right on target.

Here are the deal details for your decided delight:

Amanda Maciel at Scholastic has acquired Anna Staniszewski’s next two middle-grade novels: CLIQUE HERE and DOUBLE CLIQUE, following a twelve-year-old girl who decides to try to become popular using the scientific method—with a whole lot of unforeseen, and often hilarious, consequences. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the deal, for North American rights. The first book will publish in summer 2021.

Yes, you read that right – not one but TWO books coming with these fun characters. And not so far off, either. 2021, here we commmme :)

Huge congratulations, Anna!

Wichita Nation author Kim Rogers grew up with few books that reflected her own upbringing. As a result, she turned to writing in order to express herself and her identity. I’m so proud to announce her debut picture book for all readers, but particularly for the reader who needs to see themselves in her book. May all their dreams come true!

Cynthia Leitich Smith and Rosemary Brosnan at Heartdrum/HarperCollins have acquired JUST LIKE GRANDMA by debut author Kim Rogers (Wichita), illustrated by Julie Flett (Cree-Métis), a lyrical picture book about a contemporary Wichita girl who wants to be just like her grandma. Publication is slated for Winter 2023. Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary sold North American rights on behalf of the author; Steven Malk at Writers House represented the illustrator. 

Congratulations, Kim, on your debut deal! We’re just getting started!
