Deal Announcement – SUPER HAPPY PARTY BEARS by Marcie Colleen!

I am lucky enough to work with the wonderful Marcie Colleen – she’s a genius picture book writer and absolutely sterling person.  We’ve got three projects in the pipelines, from Balzer + Bray and Scholastic.  This summer, she called and let me know that she’d been talking with a friend and publisher, Erin Stein at Imprint – Erin had a great idea for a chapter book series and wondered if Marcie might like to write it.  As it turns out, Marcie and I had always chatted about the possibility of doing chapter books, sometime.  Sometime arrived!  And the books are going to be superb – funny, full of energy, not to mention charming as heck illustrations by Steve James. 

Hooray and congratulations to everyone involved! 

Here's a peek at the covers:
