One of the wonderful things about bookmaking is that it transcends time and season—for instance: here we are, poised on the verge of summer, the days heating up and the sun chasing away the clouds (here in the northeast, anyway!). But in book-land, big fat flakes of snow might be falling on a tiny confectioner’s store, where in the window, a small spun-sugar dancing girl awaits her moment to shine.
Does this sound a book you’d like to read? Here’s the official deal announcement:
For yet another dose of wonder, this picture book text was inspired by Karla’s own grandmother, a baker and creator of extraordinary spun-sugar figurines. It was a special joy to sell this book at auction, and to see it paired with such a perfect illustrator.
Huge congratulations, Karla!
