Exciting news! The second and third titles in our Fall 2017 program—Somewhere A Bell Is Ringing by Barbara Nye and The Day We Lost Pet by Chuck Young, illustrated by Aniela Sobieski—are now available for pre-order here on our website and at many other online retailers!
Release date is December 5 for both books, and we'll begin shipping all orders then!
Of Somewhere A Bell Is Ringing, Publishers Weekly writes "The attention to detail in both text and art is evident, and the message of global interconnectedness comes through."
And in a starred review, Kirkus Reviews calls The Day We Lost Pet "breathtakingly original" and says "debut author Young transports readers into a world somehow familiar and simultaneously unlike any they have ever experienced" and that "This supremely tender book is one that readers will return to again and again, if they can bear it, finding new meaning with each reading and in each new stage of life."
We are also happy to announce that we have partnered up with BookEnds Literary Agency to represent our titles to foreign publishers. Who knows? Maybe readers in different countries will soon be reading our Penny Candy titles in their own languages.
Finally, we are thrilled to announce that as of January 1, 2018, Publishers Group West will be distributing our books around the world.One of the leading distributors in the US, PGW will help us ensure that you can find your favorite Penny Candy titles wherever books are sold.
