Bloomsbury buys MG fantasy series

Bloomsbury has bought fantasy middle-grade series The Unicorn Hunt by debut US author Kamilla Benko.

The series, bought in a pre-empt deal by Catherine Onder at Bloomsbury USA, is about two sisters and their search for long-lost unicorns in an attempt to save their kingdom from collapse.

Onder acquired the three-book series from Stephen Barbara at InkWell Management, who was acting on behalf of Benko and Paper Lantern Lit.

Bloomsbury will publish in the UK and the US in autumn 2017.
