It is no secret that Maria Gianferrari loves dogs. In fact, she loves them so much that there’s a solid chance I have already written an announcement that begins this exact way. (Please don’t go back and check me on this!) But when the dog collar fits, you wear it—and this book we are celebrating today is not just any dog book. It’s one that comes directly from Maria’s heart, and into ours.
Here are the details, folks:
Emily Feinberg at Roaring Brook Press has acquired HAWK RISING and COYOTE MOON author Maria Gianferrari’s TO DOGS WITH LOVE, an ode of love and praise to our most faithful and loyal companions, with illustrations by Lucy Fleming. The author was represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency, and the illustrator was represented by Frederica Dawson at the Bright Agency, in a deal for World rights. The book will publish in spring 2021.
That’s right—you read it here first! (Or first-ish.) This incredibly moving story is going to be a wonderful book, and will make a worthy addition to the Maria Gianferrari Dog Books Collection. (Have you started yours yet? If not, what are you waiting for??)
