Have you met Lana Lynn yet? This adorable sheep made her picture book debut last fall, in LANA LYNN HOWLS AT THE MOON – and she quickly worked her way into the hearts of readers everywhere. And when a reader wants more, what is a happy author, illustrator, and publisher to do?

Why, sign up a sequel, of course!

Here is the official news-that-matters:

 Kathy Landwehr at Peachtree has acquired World rights to Lana Lynn and the New Watchdog, written by Rebecca Van Slyke and illustrated by Anca Sandu. In this sequel to Lana Lynn Howls at the Moon, our titular feisty young sheep takes on a new job guarding the flock—with unexpected and hilarious results. The author was represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency, and the illustrator represented herself. The book will be published in Fall 2021. 

Three cheers for Rebecca and the whole Lana Lynn team! (And don’t forget that waiting for the sequel gives you plenty of time to catch up on the original that started it all. Don’t miss out!!)
