Publication for the first book is set for fall 2018; Eric Smith at P.S. Literary Agency negotiated the deal for world rights.

Paul Lucas at Janklow & Nesbit Associates negotiated the deal.
Erica Sussman at HarperCollins has acquired, in a preempt, world English rights to Norton and Nebula nominee Greg van Eekhout's middle grade novel Starward Bound. Pitched as The Martian meets Erin Hunter's Warriors series, Starward Bound tells the story of a diligent team of dogs who accompany their humans on a deep space voyage to establish a new outpost far across the galaxy. When the dogs wake unexpectedly from hypersleep with the ship damaged and their people nowhere to be found, they seek to fulfill the mission the humans began. Publication is scheduled for fall 2018; Holly Root at Root Literary did the two-book deal while at Waxman Leavell Literary.
Annie Berger at Sourcebooks Jabberwocky has bought Julia Nobel's debut The Order of Black Hollow Lane and a sequel.

Publication is set for spring 2019; Melissa Edwards at Stonesong negotiated the deal for world English rights.
Rotem Moscovich at Disney-Hyperion has acquired at auction Anica Mrose Rissi's picture book, Watch Out for Wolf!, in which the "This Little Piggy" nursery rhyme is recast to show five anxious but enterprising little pigs preparing a very big surprise for Wolf.

Meredith Kaffel Simonoff at DeFiore and Company represented the author, and Justin Rucker at Shannon Associates represented the artist.
Allyn Johnston at S&S/Beach Lane has bought world rights to What Riley Wore by Elana K.

Linda Davick will illustrate; publication is slated for summer 2018. Rubin Pfeffer at Rubin Pfeffer Content represented both the author and illustrator.
Kristen Nobles at Page Street Kids has acquired world rights to Annie Cronin Romano's (l.) debut picture book, tentatively titled Before You Sleep.
