Oh, it's a wonderful day in the neighborhood, a wonderful day in the neighborhood. Carrie Clickard is an ace with rhyme (I seem to be collecting those kinds of writers, both with rhyme and with prose!) and nonfiction, so it's no surprise that her next picture book is rhyming nonfiction. We've reunited her with editor, Sylvie Frank, who acquired her upcoming MAGIC FOR SALE (Holiday House, 2015) and then took a job at Paula Wiseman Books at Simon & Schuster.
Give Carrie a challenge like writing a book about an historical event and bigger is better! Carrie is such a pro and such a lovely, beautiful writer. I swoon when reading this manuscript! I'm so excited to announce this deal for Carrie and Sylvie and Nancy. The book is scheduled for Fall 2017, but it's going to be worth the wait. We're SO EXCITED!
Carrie Clickard's THOMAS JEFFERSON AND THE MAMMOTH HUNT, the story of Thomas Jefferson's quest to make the young United States of America home to the biggest and best, to be illustrated by Nancy Carpenter, to Sylvie Frank at Paula Wiseman Books, by Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author (World).
