Big News! Edwardian Taylor to illustrate IT’S NOT JACK AND THE BEANSTALK

Woo hoo! I get to share the big news! Edwardian Taylor has signed on to illustrate IT’S NOT JACK AND THE BEANSTALK (Two Lions, 2017). This is from last Thursday’s PW Children’s Bookshelf.


Check out his terrific Instagram feed here to see some crazy awesome illustrations. I can’t wait to see what Edwardian does with JACK!

Big News – Book Deal: JACK! (and the beanstalk)

Great news! I sold another book!


Here’s the announcement from today’s Publishers Weekly Children’s Bookshelf:

Marilyn Brigham at Two Lions has acquired world rights to Jack and the Beanstalk by Josh Funk, a fresh take on a young Jack who is not keen on climbing any beanstalks and would much prefer to tell his own story. The book is slated for fall 2017. Kathleen Rushall at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency brokered the deal.

This will be my first non-rhyming (*gasp*) picture book (don’t worry, I haven’t gone prose for good…).

So get your bookshelves ready! It’s only another 800-900 days away!
