Here is a recipe for a fantastic book deal:

  • Take 1 animal-loving former vet-turned-nonfiction-author
    Add 1 dog-crazy superstar editor
    Stir in 1 New York Times bestselling illustrator

Yep, things are looking pretty good here in this book-kitchen!!

This is another book deal announcement day for the fabulously talented Sara Levine, whose talents come to the fore in many ways, but never more than when she is writing about her beloved four-legged friends. This book is a particular passion project, and will doubtless be of vital use to dog parents young and old.

Here is the deal announcement with ALL the info!

Emily Feinberg at Roaring Brook has acquired Sara Levine’s HOW TO SAY HELLO, with illustrations by Suzanne Kaufman. This fun and factual picture book will take a two-fold approach to teaching introduction and polite etiquette for both dogs and their humans. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author and Alexandra Penfold at Upstart Crow Literary Agency represented the illustrator, for World rights. The book will publish in spring 2022.

Woohoo and three cheers for Sara and team!!
