Hooray for Plants Can’t Sit Still!

Plants Can’t Sit Still (Millbrook, 2016), and neither can we. One of the most exciting things for Lisa and me as mentors is to see a client get her work published (because that’s generally the ultimate goal of the writers we work with), and we are super excited to see Rebecca Hirsch‘s picture book about the ways and reasons plants move. It has received two starred reviews, and it’s just lovely.

It’s not often that a client brings us work polished enough that we say, “Hey, have you thought about sending this to [XYZ] publisher?” When we saw Rebecca’s manuscript, we of course had suggestions for making it even stronger. But it was already in fantastic shape, and we felt really strongly that it was a publishable manuscript. Sometimes, it’s awfully nice to be correct:>)

I reviewed this book on my blog, so if you’d like to learn more about a charming, terrific, active nonfiction picture book with gorgeous art, just hop over to my blog for more info.

Congratulations, Rebecca–we’re so happy for you!
