Picture books

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 5d

#MSWL On the picture book side, I am looking for stories that deal with different levels of ability, and stories with LGBTQ+ families. Also some hilarious and unexpected wordplay like THE WONKY DONKEY.

#MSWL Would also really love to see more picture book and YA contemporary stories written by Native American/First Nations, Metis, or Inuit creators. Authors or author/illustrators welcome.

@jamerrson What themes, topics, styles, etc. excite you right now for picture books? #askagent

Replying to @AshleyCCongdon

Is it fair to say everything? If I had to choose, non-fiction is most exciting to me right now, and I’m especially looking for some climate/environment related stuff. But I always love funny pbs. #MSWL

#A6 PB: texts with a strong narrative arc, whether funny or lyrical, and a clear theme that young children can relate to. #mswl #scbwichat #scbwicon19

Full #MSWL to be posted this week on the agency's site and Pub Marketplace. But if you have a MG, YA, children's graphic novel proposal, are a PB author/illustrator, or write women's fiction, send me your queries following Greenhouse Literary's sub guidelines!

I’m cautiously expanding my children’s list for picture books and middle grade, but illustrator authors only, please, for now. #MSWL

Another one on the #MSWL (one day late): a #PB #picturebook on the restorative/healing properties of nature, with a mental health and wellness focus. #kidlit

I want to find more #picturebooks with classic illustrations and timeless themes! I especially have a soft spot for stories featuring siblings, intergenerational relationships, and friends. #MSWL

Elizabeth Lee @EleeReads · Sep 24

PICTURE BOOKS: thoughtful, uplifting pbs that make me want to cry and also read to every child I know.

Kendra Levin @kendralevin · Sep 24

Picture books: illustrator-driven projects that are high-concept and/or highly detailed; concept or platform-driven stories with a commercial hook that resonate with my core values of inclusion, empowerment, and making the world a better place. #MSWL

I finally made my #MSWL page! Agent friends, check out what I'm currently craving to see in my inbox, I'd love to connect on a project!

Happy #MSWL day! Agents, I'm currently acquiring middle grade, YA, and picture books. My page on the #MSWL site gives a pretty good sense of the kinds of projects I'm looking for, but here's a few other things I'd love to see in my inbox right now.

- TO ALL THE BOYS but may it gay
- picture books about cats and/or bears
- graphic novels in the vein of LAURA DEAN KEEPS BREAKING UP WITH ME or KISS NUMBER 8
- voicey middle grade where the protagonist is really into something niche. like really, weirdly into it
