Earlier in 2020, Random House Studio purchased TREE HOLE HOME by Melissa, illustrated by Amy Hevron, and now she’s back with another. This book will enthrall readers of all ages, and with Rob Dunlavey illustrating, will be a feast for the eyes as well. 

Melissa Stewart's WHALE FALL, about a whale fall, which is when a whale dies and drops to the bottom of the sea; as it decomposes, it supports a rich assortment of sea life, illustrated by Rob Dunlavey, to Ann Kelley at Random House Studio, for publication in spring 2023, by Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author, and by Ashley Valentine at Pippin Properties for the illustrator, on behalf of Elena Giovinazzo (world).

Congratulations, Melissa!
