September 17, 2014 – KABUNGO by Rolli
International rights: Canada Children’s
Rolli’s KABUNGO, about a pair of hilariously mismatched friends and their adventures – pitched as reminiscent in tone to Pippi Longstocking if she were created by Roald Dahl – with b&w line illustrations throughout, to Sheila Barry at Groundwood Books, for publication in Spring 2016, by Olga Filina at The Rights Factory (World).

we might just get it out.
Be ready, though, to plug your ears,
From Monkey Shines, an unpublished manuscript of night-themed children’s poetry.
