Gather around, my gentle readers! It's time to celebrate a brand new book that is soon to be winging its way into the world. From the bestselling, beloved author Pat Zietlow Miller—can we ever get enough of her books? we cannot!—comes a glorious new read-aloud adventure. Here is the deal announcement:

New York Times-bestselling author Pat Zietlow Miller's IN OUR GARDEN, a classroom tale about students who create a vegetable garden on their school's rooftop, illustrated by Melissa Crowton, to Stephanie Pitts at Putnam Children's, for publication in Spring 2021, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at the Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author and Kirsten Hall at Catbird Productions for the illustrator.

This book is sure to be another modern classic, and I for one can't wait to see the finished product. Shall we hold a garden party to celebrate? I'll bring the scones!

Huge congratulations to Pat!
