My trip to the UK was lovely. I drank tea, ate scones, and visited castles. What more could you ask for? Oh? A book deal? You’d like a book deal while you’re on vacation? Fine. Here you go:
DOGOSAURUS REX author Anna Staniszewski’s POWER DOWN, LITTLE ROBOT, about a young robot going through his nightly routine with the least efficiency and the most excuses possible, again to Sally Doherty at Holt Children’s, in a two-book deal, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency (World).
I couldn’t be more excited about this news! A book that combines my love of picture books, robots, and bedtime–and someone actually wants to publish it? Plus a companion book about more of Little Robot’s misadventures? Woohoo!
The first book is tentatively scheduled for Fall 2015 which, funnily enough, means it’ll be coming out before DOG REX. Publishing is an odd business that way, especially when it comes to illustrated books, but hey, I’m not complaining.
And now it’s robot party time!
