This is Catherine’s third sale to Hachette. Earlier this year, Catherine sold her first picture book, Something for Fleur, and in 2016 sold middle-grade Quark’s Academy.
Quark’s Academy is already generating buzz for release next year:
“From the futuristic travel capsule that transports the students to the chemical compounds that enhance memory, the scientific principles of Quark’s Academy toe the line brilliantly between science-fiction and reality. Catherine Pelosi’s Quark’s Academy is an engaging and entertaining debut for readers aged eight and up with an interest in STEM—or those who just love a well-paced adventure story with fantastical elements.”
