This gorgeous board book is a fantastic look at Brazil by Ana Siqueira who introduces readers and their parents, teachers, family, and friends to the beautiful and fun things available to do while in Brazil. I want to do it all! I just need a plane ticket! 

We’re so excited to have this board book coming our way next spring. 

Kate DePalma at Barefoot Books has bought world rights to Our World: Brazil, by Ana Siqueira (l.) (If Your Babysitter Is a Bruja), illustrated by Ana Matsusaki (A Colecionadora de Cabeças); Autumn Allen will edit. Ride the ônibus to the beach, drink sugar cane juice at the feira, and more in this board book that draws on the author and illustrator's lived experience of daily life in Brazil. Publication is planned for spring 2023; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author, and the illustrator represented herself. 

Congratulations, Ana!
