World English rights to Sisterland were pre-empted last week by Random House USA/Crown Books: “…Just as she has shown in her As Red As Blood teen series, Simukka continues to prove that she is one of today’s most talented children’s writers.” – Phoebe Yeh, VP, Publisher, Crown Books for Young Readers
Also Simukka’s Macedonian publisher Bata Press has acquired the rights for the second and the third installment in the Snow White Trilogy – As White As Snow and As Black As Ebony. Congratulations!
The 11-year-old Alice falls through the snow and lands in the summery world of Sisterland – and in a much-awaited adventure! In the heart of Sisterland lies a garden full of all kinds of peculiar creatures: wind faeries, dream weavers and asking flowers. Together with her new friend Marissa they must find the queen who rules Sisterland to end the snowfall in their own world.
The Finnish edition will be published by Tammi in October 2016 with delicate black-and-white illustrations by Saku Heinänen.
