Maybe you know someone like this, a young person in your own life who has that certain . . . spark? Maybe this IS you, or WAS you, or WILL BE you someday soon? If any of those statements are true, then you must meet Iggy. This unforgettably fiery heroine utterly captured my heart from the moment she first popped into my Inbox. And I know she will do the same for you, too.

Here is the dynamite deal announcement for Carrie Kruck’s next new SERIES:

<< Sylvie Frank at Disney-Hyperion has acquired, at auction, World rights to Carrie Kruck’s IGGY WHO BREATHED FIRE, with illustrations by Erika Meza, about an ordinary girl with a quite extraordinary condition, in a magical twist on girl power and a reminder to us all to treasure the fire within. The two-book deal was negotiated by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author and Claire Cartey at Holroyde Cartey Ltd. for the illustrator. The first book will publish in summer 2024. >>

What do you say, all? Shall we set this world on fire??? Getting to know Iggy seems like a great first step on that worthy path. 

Huge congratulations, Carrie!!
