So, yeah, Calista Brill's had a lot going on already--two book deals with Harper (one for six books!), and now a new one, with a new house: CAT WISHES, a sly little picture book text about a cat who doesn't believe in wishes (but when he's granted three, makes them anyway) has just been signed with the brilliant Kate O'Sullivan at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Hooray!
Even better? Illustrator Kenard Pak has also signed on to the project. He's a real up-and-comer--and when Calista saw his art, it was EXACTLY what she'd pictured. Lickety-split, a book is underway with happy author, happy illustrator, happy editor...and happy agent (that's me!). The book is scheduled to release in fall 2017.
