Lucy and the Rocket Dog

Will News 2 Comments

I’m delighted to say that I’ve sold the rights for my forthcoming middle-grade children’s book, Lucy and the Rocket Dog. The book is about space-dogs, friendship, relativity, wormholes and other such matters. Knopf over in New York have acquired the rights, and so the book should be coming out in the summer of 2017. The Turkish edition, Lucy ve Laika, is coming out in the autumn of 2015.

See the brief news item in Publishers’ Weekly for more information.

  1. My congratulations, Will.
    With some apprehension read the Turkish name of the book. The true Laika story was an eternal nightmare of my childhood. (I don’t think yours is based on it, though.)

  2. I know. The true story is horrible. But this is sort of written in honour of the other Laika (there’s an author’s note to the effect at the end).
