YIPPEE! I’m Over the Moon About Luna!

The real Luna – from the Shedd Aquarium website at -http://www.sheddaquarium.org/blog/2014/December/Luna-in-Photos/

If any of you know “Luna” at the Shedd Aquarium, then you can understand why I’m so, SO excited about my latest book deal for a story based on her story.

If you haven’t yet met Luna, I encourage you to take a gander at the Shedd Aquarium website for a journey into adorableness.

Here’s the announcement from Publishers Weekly!

“Laura Godwin at Henry Holt has acquired world rights to PUP 681, a picture book written by Jean Reidy and illustrated by Ashley Crowley. The story of an orphaned sea otter that is lovingly rescued and cared for was inspired by real-life events. It’s scheduled for publication in winter 2018; Erin Murphy of Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author and Kirsten Hall of Catbird Productions represented the illustrator.”

Otter-ly exuberant,
