I'm so delighted to announce another picture book text from Nancy Raines Day! This one has had to stay on the DL for far too long, but now we've got an illustrator attached and the news can be shouted to the world. Ahoy matey!

Author of What In the World? Sets in Nature, Nancy Raines Day's picture book, Pirate Jack Gets Dressed: A Colorful Yarrrn, to Andrea Welch at Beach Lane, to be illustrated by Allison Black. Day was represented by Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency, and Black was represented by Kelly Sonnack at Andrea Brown Literary Agency for publication in Spring 2019 (World).

Congratulations, Nancy! We can't wait for PIRATE JACK!
