Announcing a deal! Alison Oliver's MOON

I'm delighted to announce the sale of Alison Oliver's picture book, MOON, as well as a sequel.  MOON is a gorgeous, heartfelt story that explores the joy of wildness.

Like most children, Moon’s life is busy.  School is followed by homework, followed by piano practice, followed by chores; and the next day it all begins again.  Moon is good at doing everything expected, but she wonders: what it would be like if she didn’t have so much to do.  

And then, one night, she meets a wolf.  Not the wolf you’re expecting – not the one that plagued the pigs, or grinned at Red Riding Hood.  This wolf takes her to the forest, away from home and the endless round of things-to-do.  Moon doesn’t command or tame the wolves, she learns from them – she learns to howl, to hide, and how to be wild. 

A big congratulations to Alison and Jennifer Greene at Clarion Books.  I can't wait for this book to be out in the world!
