Children’s: Picture book
James Burks’s illustrations for author Tara Lazar’s THE MONSTORE, to Emily Lawrence and Alyson Heller at Aladdin, in a nice deal, by Kelly Sonnack at Andrea Brown Literary Agency.

I’m thrilled to have James working on THE MONSTORE! Seeing the characters come alive is going to be fun. There’s Zack, his pesky little sister Gracie, the Monstore manager, and Manfred, Mookie and Mojo. (Geesh, how did I fit all those characters into 600 words?!) Hopefully I get permission to share some in-progress work.
