Picture book bio on Charles Schulz sold to Henry Holt Books For Young Readers!!!

I am thrilled to report a picture book idea I had back in late 2015 on cartoonist Charles Schulz of "Peanuts" fame was recently bought by the wonderful publisher/editor, Christy Ottaviano at Henry Holt/Macmillan!!! 

After 16 years in this business this is truly a dream job and a deeply personal one to me.

Here is the recent announcement in Publishers Weekly and some new character sketches. I also just traveled to Schulz's hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota and spent several days researching his old neighborhoods. 

Work has begun in earnest with a publishing date of 2019!
