HarperCollins Children’s Books has snaffled two more books from Ben Fogle in his Mr Dog young fiction series, written with Steve Cole.
Editorial director Michelle Misra acquired world rights in all languages from Philippa Milnes-Smith, m.d. at The Soho Agency.
The fifth book in the series, Mr Dog and the Dancing Deer, will publish in paperback, e-book and audio in September 2020, illustrated by Emmy award-winning artist and animator Nikolas Ilic.
Fogle said: “I’m thrilled to be publishing another two children’s books with HarperCollins. Mr Dog is inspired by things that are so close to my heart – animals and the environment – both of which I know matter to children themselves.”
Misra said: “Mr Dog is a truly funny, engaging character and Ben’s voice radiates off the page. I can’t wait to see what happens next in these new stories.”
