The delightful and talented Katherine Battersby is new to EMLA, but not new to publishing. Her published books include the charming SQUISH RABBIT series, and her style immediately caught my heartstrings, despite a professed intention to steer myself toward the text side of the agent-sphere. (Yep, her work really is that awesome!)

Today, I'm delighted to share our first EMLA deal for Katherine—and here is the deal announcement below:

Tracy Gates at Viking has acquired SQUISH RABBIT creator Katherine Battersby's new picture book TROUBLE, about a city squirrel whose orderly life is interrupted by the arrival of a new neighbor: a bear who is CLEARLY up to no good. Publication is tentatively planned for summer 2020. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency did the deal for North American rights.

Readers all over are in for a treat with this quirky and charming project. Hooray and huge congrats, Katherine!

Deborah Underwood is at it again! Her latest deal has a wonderful science bent, but it's also about empathy.

XO, EXOPLANET is about the planets of our solar system spotting another planet outside the system—an exoplanet—and reaching out to it, via letter, to express their happiness that it is in the galaxy. But feelings get stepped on as the correspondence continues. Who is really the exoplanet here?

Tracey Keevan, who worked with Deborah on PART-TIME MERMAID and the Super Saurus books, has signed it along with editorial assistant Esther Cajahuaringa—and brought illustrator Jorge Lacera on board for a summer 2020 publication. Publication is scheduled for summer 2020. It's going to be dynamite!

Congratulations, Deborah!

—Erin
