So I’m a bit late sharing this news here, but I’m so excited to announce the latest illo deal for artist Jorge Lacera! Check out the announcement in PW:
Regular readers may recall that last year Jorge and his wife Megan signed a two-book deal last year with Lee & Low for their creation ZOMBIES DON’T EAT VEGGIES. We’re so excited to add Disney-Hyperion to Jorge’s list of publishers!
Jessica Echeverria at Lee & Low has bought world rights in a two-book deal to Zombies Don’t Eat Veggies, the debut picture book by husband-and-wife team Megan and Jorge Lacera. The story follows Mo Romero, a young zombie who convinces his zombie parents to try (and love!) vegetables. Publication is scheduled for fall 2018; John M. Cusick at Folio Jr./Folio Literary Management negotiated the deal.
Guys this book is hilarious and sweet and delightful, whether or not you are pro-vegetable (and who isn’t pro-zombies?) Check out more from the Lacera family at http://www.studiolacera.com/
