Picture book author extraordinaire Dan Richards is known for his charming books, including THE PROBLEM WITH NOT BEING SCARED OF MONSTERS and CAN ONE BALLOON MAKE AN ELEPHANT FLY? (Well, can it? You'll have to read the book and find out...)

But today we're here to celebrate an exciting new deal for Dan—an all-new picture book with an all-new publisher. Here's all the jazzy details:

Dan Richards's PENNY AND PENELOPE, featuring two girls who create very different personalities for their dolls, but find common ground during their imaginary, action-packed adventures, with illustrations by Claire Almon, to Imprint, with Nicole Otto editing, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author and Helen Yung at Astound US for the illustrator (World) for publication in Spring 19.

This quirky and unique picture book is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, so mark your calendars accordingly. Congrats, Dan!!
