This is quite a week for celebrating good news, and none more than our own Amy Cherrix, non-fiction author extraordinaire. Till now, Amy has kept her considerable talents trained on longer narrative pieces—but this hot new deal showcases her talents on the younger, PB side as well. And with breathtaking results!

Here's the fantastic deal posted up to Publishers Weekly:

Andrea Welch at S&S/Beach Lane has bought at auction, in a two-book, six-figure deal, Amy Cherrix's Animal Architects, illustrated by Chris Sasaki. The nonfiction picture book showcases the many amazing ways and things that animals build. The first title is tentatively set for publication in fall 2021; Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency and Kirsten Hall at Catbird Productions brokered the deal for world rights.

Huge congratulations, Amy!
