Deal Announcement: Macmillan acquires two picture books and three more fiction titles from Mo O’Hara!

As announced in the Bookseller, I am delighted to confirm a two-book picture book deal for the amazing Mo O’Hara, author of the New York Times bestselling MY BIG FAT ZOMBIE GOLDFISH series.

 

The first picture book will be a full colour adventure set in the zombie goldfish world, and illustrated by Marek Jagucki who also illustrates the fiction titles.

 

 

The second picture book is called MORE PEOPLE TO LOVE ME, and tackles the subject of divorce and coping with new families in a funny and warm-hearted way. I am so excited for you all to get to read Mo’s picture books – she is a natural with this age range!

 

 

AND in addition to these, Macmillan Children’s UK and Feiwel & Friends have jointly acquired a further three titles in the MY BIG FAT ZOMBIE GOLDFISH series – bringing the total number of swishy-fishy adventures to six. With the picture book, and rights to the fiction series sold in Brazil, Turkey and Germany, I think we have to worry about Frankie, the zombie goldfish, and his plans for world domination. *insert evil laugh here*

 

 

All go and congratulate Mo on twitter or visit her website
