One manuscript was older. The other, brand new! But they wrapped up nicely in a two book deal to the editor who purchased my PUP 681 picture book as well.
Here’s the announcement from Publishers Marketplace:
“BUSY BUILDERS, BUSY WEEK! author Jean Reidy’s WHEN THE SNOW IS DEEPER THAN YOUR BOOTS ARE TALL, about a great, big snow day as experienced by a very young child, and GROUP HUG, about a forest of friendly animals who learn the contagious happiness that hugs can bring, to Laura Godwin at Holt Children’s, by Erin Murphy of Erin Murphy Literary Agency (world).”
Hugs all around!
