New adult jacket for Maggot Moon

Hot Key Books is publishing Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner with a new adult-focused jacket, to be released on 31st January.

The title won the 2012 Costa Children's Book Award, and is therefore in the running to win the overall prize, the Costa Book of the Year, which will be announced on 29th January.

Hot Key Books m.d. Sarah Odedina said: "We are delighted to be publishing Maggot Moon for an adult audience. It is a wonderful book and, like many other great works for young readers, will appeal to an adult audience because of its subtle sophistication and brilliant storytelling."

The book is set in a reimagined 1950s world under the 'Motherland's' dictatorship, and was first published in August 2012.
