Someday there are a lot of great things to tell you about Phil Bildner's upcoming middle-grade novel—but for now, we're keeping most of them under wraps. So all I can tell you is:

—It's middle-grade.
—It involves baseball.
—It will be published by Wesley Adams at FSG (who also edited Phil's Rip & Red books).
—It will come out in winter 2020.
—Its genesis was unorthodox.
—It was sold on proposal, but even with just a few chapters to read, it made me cry.

So you're just going to have to trust me for now that there's lots of other fantastic stuff in the future about this book. And as always, having a new book underway is thrilling. Congratulations, Phil!

Picture book author extraordinaire Dan Richards is known for his charming books, including THE PROBLEM WITH NOT BEING SCARED OF MONSTERS and CAN ONE BALLOON MAKE AN ELEPHANT FLY? (Well, can it? You'll have to read the book and find out...)

But today we're here to celebrate an exciting new deal for Dan—an all-new picture book with an all-new publisher. Here's all the jazzy details:

Dan Richards's PENNY AND PENELOPE, featuring two girls who create very different personalities for their dolls, but find common ground during their imaginary, action-packed adventures, with illustrations by Claire Almon, to Imprint, with Nicole Otto editing, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author and Helen Yung at Astound US for the illustrator (World) for publication in Spring 19.
