Goodbye, 2023! — What’s New with Owlkids?

We can’t believe the year is almost over! We’re so grateful for all the people who have a hand in helping share our books with the world: talented authors and illustrators, sales reps, booksellers, reviewers, and of course our readers. Your continued support means so much to us.

In our final blog post of the year, we’d like to share a few exciting updates about our books. First up, some awards news!

We’ve also received some great recent reviews:

The rights team at Owlkids have also been busy over the last few months! In the last two months alone we’ve had successful trips to both the Frankfurt Book Fair and the Translation Rights Fair at the Salon du livre de Montréal, where we met with publishers from around the world and in the French Canadian market to discuss and present our amazing books.

One piece of rights news we’re excited to share is that three of our upcoming books for Spring 2024 are Junior Library Guild selections! JLG is a curated book club of top-quality new children’s books for librarians across the United States and Canada. Those books are:

  • The Keeper of Stars by Jennifer Harris and illustrated by Dorothy Leung
  • Otis & Peanut Forever and Ever by Naseem Hrab and illustrated by Kelly Collier
  • Making Sense of Dog Senses by Stephanie Gibeault and illustrated by Raz Latif

We can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the new year!

See you in 2024!
