When Cynthia Levinson, author of award-winning picture book and MG nonfiction, mentioned the title WHO OWNS THE MOON? to me, I was hooked. I could only imagine how she would explore big, meaty questions about space and ownership and laws and ethics for upper middle grade readers. And when she said she was going to collaborate with award-winning science writer Jennifer Swanson, who would tackle the technology side of things, it got even better! And THEN I read this in the project’s proposal: "Today’s teens are growing up in a time in which Earth will no longer be the only inhabited celestial body. In fact it’s likely their world will eventually consist of civilizations on multiple planets and Moons.” WOW! We can’t even fathom the world they will live in!

I was very happy to work with Lori Kilkelly, representing Jen, on what turned into an auction—and thrilled to have the project land at Peachtree, which has published Cynthia’s other MG nonfiction (as well as Jen’s SAVE THE CRASH-TEST DUMMIES), with Margaret Quinlin. 

Watch for this one in summer 2024!

Congratulations, Cynthia!

It’s been a great year so far for talented author Anna Crowley Redding: her picture book THE GRAVITY TREE published in May, and her riveting work of MG non-fiction, BLACK HOLE CHASERS just dropped last week. (Do you have your copies of these books yet? Don’t delay!!)

But that’s not all! In a dynamite show of versatility, I am here today to announce Anna’s latest new work on the horizon—it’s actually been in the works for some time already, but I am thrilled to be able to share the news abroad at last. Here goes . . .

Hilary Van Dusen and Carter Hasegawa at Candlewick Press have acquired Anna Crowley Redding’s new non-fiction chapter book series, DANGER FILES, a fast-paced narrative that invites young readers to put on their detective hats as they consider the mounting evidence that leads up to a disaster—weaving in eyewitness accounts, danger clues, fact files, and more. The books will be illustrated by Robbie Cathro. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author and Alex Gehringer at The Bright Agency the illustrator, in a two-book deal for World rights. The first book will publish in Spring 2024.

This exciting new NF series continues Anna’s tradition of creating engaging, un-put-downable true stories for all age groups. Now, a whole chapter book series!

 Mark your calendars for this release, folks—and a huge congratulations, Anna!!
