It's been a busy year for Nancy Tupper Ling, beginning with the sale of THE DOUBLE HAPPINESS BOX to Chronicle in March, then THE YIN-YANG SISTERS AND THE DRAGON FRIGHTFUL to Putnam just last month. Today, I'm thrilled to announce another brand new picture book deal for Nancy!
THE STORY I'LL TELL is a gentle and moving origin story, where a mother weaves together fantastical stories and tall tales to tell how her baby came to her. Each story contains a little kernel of truth, piecing together the baby's journey across a wide ocean and into her new mother's arms. This gorgeous story of adoption and parental love is heartwarming in the truest sense of the word, and sure to become a classic.
I'm thrilled to share that THE STORY I'LL TELL was acquired by Jessica Echeverria at Lee & Low! Hooray and congratulations to Nancy!
