I’m so honored to be sharing the story of Tyrus Wong as a picture book coming in Fall ’19.
From Publishers Weekly:
Anne Schwartz at Schwartz & Wade has acquired world rights to Julie Leung‘s Paper Son: The Story of Tyrus Wong, illustrated by Chris Sasaki. The picture book biography tells the story of the Chinese-born American designer of Disney’s Bambi, whose impressionistic style inspired generations of illustrators. Publication is planned for fall 2019; Wendi Gu at Janklow & Nesbit represented the author while at Sanford J. Greenburger, and Kirsten Hall at Catbird Productions represented the illustrator.
