Middle-grade author Christina Uss's debut novel is the quirky and charming THE ADVENTURES OF A GIRL CALLED BICYCLE, forthcoming from Margaret Ferguson Books/Holiday House in spring 2018—and word on the street is that the book launch will be celebrated by the author's bike-riding book tour! (Follow Christina on Twitter or check her website for more details J)

While this excellent momentum is building, it seems like the absolutely perfect time to start talking about book #2 – yep, you've got it: It's a brand new book deal for Christina and her team. Here's the details:

Margaret Ferguson at Holiday House has acquired THE ADVENTURES OF A GIRL CALLED BICYCLE author Christina Uss's new middle-grade, COLOSSUS OF ROADS. The story follows an eleven-year-old boy with an eye for patterns who finds an unexpected way to make a difference when his city is caught in a crisis. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency did the deal for World rights. The book is planned for spring 2019.

I'm so thrilled for this amazing new deal, and I can't wait till you can all meet Christina's amazing characters. Huge congrats, Christina!

It seems like we're all doing our best to get back to basics these days. Reconnecting with the physical space around us, remembering to be grateful. And what could be more inspiring than a lyrical picture book from Liz Garton Scanlon expressing gratitude for gardens and growing things?

Liz will once again be joining the dynamite team at Beach Lane, Andrea Welch and Allyn Johnston, to bring this picture book into the world—and they've once again found a stellar illustrator. This time it's Simone Shin (repped by Kelly Sonnack of Andrea Brown). I can't wait to see this one come together! It will hit shelves in spring 2020.

Congratulations, Liz!
