I've recently delivered artwork for Truck, Truck, Goose! The first of two books written by the super talented author Tammi Sauer, publishing with Katherine Tegan Books an Imprint of Harper Collins U.S. I can't wait to be able to show you a sneak peak of the artwork! I had a ridiculous amount of fun with a brilliant cast of characters! Goose being the star of the show!
I've just started on my rough sketches for the second title (VERY exciting!!!). All I can say for now, without giving tooooo much away, is that it's got a fantastic hook!
Here's the deal which was announced in Publishers Weekly!
Harper Lands New Sauer Pic Books
In a two-book world rights deal, picture book author Tammi Sauer sold Truck, Truck, Goose and an untitled picture book to Jill Davis at Harper’s Katherine Tegen Books imprint. Sauer, a former teacher and author of more than 20 picture books, will be working with illustrator Zoe Waring. Both titles are based on the game duck, duck, goose, according to Laura Rennert at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency, who represented Sauer. Rennert said the books riff on the game and feature an “irrepressible, adorable goose” as well as, in the first title, “12 different kinds of trucks.” Waring was represented in the deal by Anne Moore Armstrong at the Bright Agency. Truck, Truck, Goose is set for a summer 2017 release, and the other book for a summer 2018 release.
