oh, do avail yourselves of the preorder opportunity to own Knopf's DEBUT of picturebook author Ame Dyckman. we like to tell authors seeking agents that we snatched Ame at a conference after expressly announcing we were not signing picturebook author-only clients. Ame proves the adage, cream always rises to the top. call us skimmers, if you must.
Ame's SECOND picturebook will be coming from Viking, sometime in 2012 we imagine.
