That lovable little cockroach strikes again! Henry Holt Books has bought Katie Speck’s third Maybelle chapter book, MAYBELLE AT THE FAIR. This follows much critical acclaim for the first two books. MAYBELLE IN THE SOUP earned a starred review from Kirkus, and MAYBELLE GOES TO TEA earned a spot on the New York Library’s Top 100 children’s books of 2008 and is shortlisted for the Cybils award. Look for MAYBELLE AT THE FAIR in early 2011. Congratulations, Katie!
A Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce and Maybelle Goes to Tea by Katie Speck continue to garner accolades! Both made the Cybils shortlist. Winners will be announced in early February. The Cybils is an online literary contest that lets the public nominate books on the Cybils blog. A group of respected children’s literature bloggers pick the finalists and winners. Find out more at the Cybils site.
Way to go, ladies! We can’t wait to see what the future brings for you both!
