So excited for P.J. Hoover and her MG fantasy adventure HOMER'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE to get to readers. It's a fabulous romp through The Odyssey and I know you'll love it as much as I do! Congratulations, P.J.!

Madeline Smoot at Cbay has bought P.J. Hoover's middle grade fantasy, Homer's Excellent Adventure, pitched as Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventuremeets The Odyssey, in which 12-year-old Homer is about to fail out of school unless he can come up with the most epic story ever. Homer hates writing and has no idea what to write about, but the god Hermes sends him on a journey guaranteed to be filled with adventure (along with plenty of monsters). The book will publish in spring 2020; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency did the deal for North American rights.
