As an unabashed lover of patterns in the world around me, it was a delight to sell a book based on Lisa’s gorgeous prose about patterns in nature and how ubiquitous they can be. I see them every single day.

Matched with amazing photographs showcasing such pattern examples makes this book even more special and exciting. I just know kids will eat this up! Make sure to add this one to your 2023 lists and get copies for your kids, extended family, friends, and students. And then wait to see how many patterns they are able to find for themselves in our lovely world!

Carol Hinz at Lerner/Millbrook has bought world rights to Patterns Everywhere by Lisa Varchol Perron. This lyrical nonfiction photo book is an invitation to explore the many places in nature where patterns can be found, from leaf veins to snowflakes to sand dunes. Publication is scheduled for spring 2023; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary brokered the deal. 

Congratulations, Lisa!
