Bloomsbury signs picture book duo

Bloomsbury Children’s Books has acquired Lola Dutch is a Little Bit Much by husband and wife duo Kenneth and Sarah Jane Wright.

The book is about a girl who has lots of animal friends and whose energy and imagination can sometimes go too far.

Sarah Shumway, senior editor at Bloomsbury in the US, acquired the world rights to two titles from Emily van Beek at Folio Literary Management. Bloomsbury will publish globally in early 2018.

Rachel Boden, acting editorial director for picture books at Bloomsbury UK, said: “It’s always a delight to find a new picture book pairing and we are so pleased to welcome Lola Dutch to the list. We instantly adored Lola's boundless energy and huge imagination, and we're sure she's found the perfect home at Bloomsbury.”
