WCA Deal Report for June 18, 2021

  • Connie Hsu at Roaring Brook Press has acquired BUTTERFLY ON THE WIND, a picture book by Adam Pottle and illustrated by Ziyue Chen.

Publication is slated for Fall 2023. Emmy Nordstrom Higdon at Westwood Creative Artists represented the author and Mela Bolinao at MB Artists represented the artist for world rights.
