What could be more joyful than celebrating an exciting new book deal for a debut author? Nothing, I say! We are at peak joyful today!
And what a book it is – Carrie Kruck is an author whose voice captivated me from the moment I first read her work. Her evocative storytelling and whimsical imagination sealed the deal. Then, this text showed up in my Inbox:
Can’t you picture it? I sure could! And so could brilliant illustrator Erin Kraan (and her agent, Catbird’s Kirsten Hall) – and not long after, the inestimable editor Andrea Welch at Beach Lane. The result is a match-made-in-picture-book- heaven, which will be popping out onto your bookshelves in Fall 2023.
Hooray and congratulations, Carrie! May it be the first of many to come.
