Big Buzz in the USA!

We’re flying high watching Philippa Leathers’s debut picture book, Black Rabbit, scoring its first ace reviews! Last week it received an A in Entertainment Weekly. This weekend it was praised as “Too Cute for Words” by the Wall Street Journal. We’re thrilled to see one of our artists becoming so visible, both to industry insiders and outsiders! And we are so proud to be on Candlewick’s new list (who just won a Caldecott award yesterday, for Jon Klassen’s This Is Not My Hat)!

This is a great example of how Bright manages its artists – it brings confidence to our clients. Our US office allows us to launch an artist in the states as well as on home ground. Such a huge debut success gives our UK clients huge confidence that a US co-edition is possible which, is evaluable in a struggling market. Phillipa Leathers is still unattached to a UK publishing house, please get in touch if you are interested.
