Firefly buys new Horatio Clare

Wales-based publisher Firefly Press has acquired Aubrey and the Terrible Spiders, the sequel to Aubrey and the Terrible Yoot, by Horatio Clare.
 
In the book, Aubrey must save the world’s insects with the help of Ariadne the spider, a silverfish, a flea and all the children in the world.
 
Publisher Penny Thomas acquired world English language rights from Zoe Waldie at Rogers, Coleridge & White. She said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Horatio Clare and Jane Matthews on this second story to feature the rambunctious Aubrey. Horatio is a very fine writer and Aubrey and the Terrible Yoot is a classic and daring children’s tale.”
 
Publication is set for 2017.
