So having waited since December, I'm pleased to finally announce the sale of PIGLOO to Henry Holt.  It's a picture book based on a story I first wrote in first grade, and have been working on for the last ten years or so on and off, so I'm pretty excited about it. :)

Sally Doherty is our editor, and Lorna Hussey, an English illustrator, is doing the illustrations. These aren't pictures of Pigloo, but it shows you her style: http://www.eunicemcmullen.co.uk/illustrators_detail.php?id=36


And here's the link to the rights report in PW:

I just read about this in PW Children's!  Big, BIG, BIG CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's see. You wrote it in first grade? And you've been working on it for the last 10 years? By my calculations that makes you (ummm) 16 years old.


Anyway, it sounds unbelieveably cute.


Thrilled to death for you.

I guess I should have said: "This is truly pig PIG, PIG news!!!!!!!!!!!!"

(I'm going to have to get a stamp that says: "What 217 said" because, once again, that's exactly what I was thinking.)

I'm new here and haven't followed your journey as others have, but would like to add congratulations. To continue working on a story so long that you wrote so young...wow.

(My mother framed the first "book" I wrote in the first grade and gave it to me as a present when she didn't have any money to buy a gift. I will not follow your lead. My mother wanted to know how I knew about sex in the first grade and how I thought carving knives entered in to it.)

Enjoy this exciting ride and the many more that are sure will follow.  :fireworks
