The Water Bears

New book coming in 2020!

Dana Carey at Wendy Lamb Books has acquired PICKLE author Kim Baker's new middle grade novel, THE WATER BEARS, in which 13-year-old Newt Gomez tries to recover from a bear attack and have a normal life on an eclectic island with a maybe-lake monster, a bear statue that may grant wishes, an imminent vaudeville festival, and a temperamental former taco truck, for publication in spring 2020.  Sara Crowe at Pippin Properties negotiated the deal for North American rights.
