It's been a busy week! We are happy to announce yet another deal for Mary Lyn Ray, whose picture book DEER DANCER was just signed by Allyn Johnston of Beach Lane Books. Allyn signed Mary Lyn's THE STAR BOOK this summer, as well; it will be out next year with stunning art by Marla Frazee. The illustrator of DEER DANCER, which is a poetic text about a young dancer who finds inspiration (and a hint of friendship) in nature, will be Lauren Stringer, who also illustrated Mary Lyn's RED RUBBER BOOT DAY and MUD.
Congratulations, Mary Lyn!
