Annie’s text went on sub late last summer just before I went camping for the final time before the season closed. I was sitting around a campfire (well, a propane fire, because of increased fire danger) and I thought I should just check for emails/texts, since it had been a few days. Usually, when camping, I can only receive texts/email, but I can't reply. I turned on my data and there was Hannah’s lovely email asking to buy Annie’s HUSH, LITTLE HERO. The chipmunks came out to celebrate with us (well, actually, they wanted our popcorn), and everyone in the woods rejoiced at the good news!

Hannah Lambert at Little Simon has bought world rights to Hush, Little Hero by Annie Bailey (l.) illustrated by Dawn Lo. This bedtime board book follows a toddler "hero" who's had a full day of leaping over block tower buildings, chasing villains, and teaching their stuffed animals to fly. Publication is planned for spring 2023; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author, and Nicole Tugeau at Tugeau 2 represented the illustrator. 

Congratulations, Annie!
