It’s celebration day over here at EMLA, because it’s time to announce a new book on its way from the brilliant pen of Dan Richards. In case you need a refresher, I recommend taking a few side-splitting, heart-warming moments with such classic titles as ONCE UPON A GOAT, PENNY & PENELOPE, and CAN ONE BALLOON MAKE AN ELEPHANT FLY.

I know, right?? 

But I digress. Today we are here to trumpet some good news, and trumpet we shall! Here is the exciting deal announcement for a new PB on the near(ish) horizon: 

Kelly Delaney at Knopf has acquired Once Upon a Goat author Dan Richards’ Nubby, about an overworked stuffed bunny who strikes out on a quest for glory, to be illustrated by Shanda McCloskey. Publication is set for Spring 2023; Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author and Erica Rand Silverman at Stimola Literary Studio represented the illustrator.

Congratulations, Dan!!
