Chris Raschka , a two-time Caldecott Medal winner, has inked a multi-book deal with the Abrams Appleseed imprint.
The publisher will release four new Thingy Things titles throughout the year 2014: Crabby Crab, Cowy Cow, Buggy Bug, and Clammy Clam. In addition, four previous-published books from this series will be revised and re-released.
Sanford J. Greenburger Associates agent Brenda Bowen negotiated the deal with publishing director Cecily Kaiser.
Raschka had this statement in the release:
As the creator of the Thingy Things series, I could not be happier—I’m over the moon—that these little books are alive again on the Abrams Appleseed list. And they look even better now in their new format: larger and more unified. Altogether they look smashing, if I do say so myself.
