My cheeky monkeys!
I am so thrilled to report that my incredible agent Kathleen has SOLD MY BOOK!
The non-teeny tiny version:
Jess Keating’s debut HOW TO OUTRUN A CROCODILE WHEN YOUR SHOES ARE UNTIED, when a shy 12-year-old girl gets news that her zoologist parents are moving the whole family into a zoo AND they’re all going to be on TV, she tries to channel her inner chameleon and fade into the background, but things are changing too quickly for her to keep up, to Aubrey Poole at Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, in a nice deal, in a two-book deal, by Kathleen Rushall at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency (World).
You guys, this is so surreal.
I can’t thank you enough for all your support, whether it is online or in person. When I started writing years ago, I had no idea the kidlit community would be such an amazing, generous, and hilarious place. It means so much to me to share this with you!
THE HIGHEST OF FIVES TO EVERYONE!
Sourcebooks Jabberwocky has been behind some of my favorite MG authors, and I’m so thrilled that I get to join in the fun!
And to Kat, my fabulous agent: THANK YOU! Happy Agent’s Day!
