We are thrilled to announced that one of our picture book highlights this season, the utterly charming STELLA by Ted Forsström and Åsa Lucander has been sold to Denmark. Gads Forlag bought the Danish rights in a pre-empt. The deal was closed by Anna Kappauf at Elina Ahlbäck Literary Agency. STELLA will be published in Finland next week by Förlaget and Etana Editions simultaneously.
STELLA is an original bedtime story picture book featuring a very loud dog with lively imagination, mimicing the creative excuses toddlers come up with when it is time to go to bed. It’s a new, exciting collaboration between comedian and Finlandia Junior nominated author Ted Forsström and Aardman Animations director and illustrator Åsa Lucander.
The book was hugely popular during Bologna book fair last week and we expect more offers soon – be quick and secure the rights for your language now!
Snälla Stella, sluta skälla!
