I have exciting news to share with you!! Seven Seas, distributed by Tor, both part of Macmillan, got publishing rights for a Korean (!!!) coloring book: The Mysterious Library: A Coloring Book Journey Into Fables by Eunji Park. I’m squeeing a lot right now and it’s hard to get my thoughts organized, but I hope this is a the start of a new trend in publishing with USA publishers get republishing rights for “international” coloring books. I’m particularly excited for the concept of this coloring book because I ♥ books and reading and fictional worlds so this coloring book sounds perfect for me!
The Mysterious Library: A Coloring Book Journey Into Fables by Eunji Park releases on November 1, 2016 in the USA and elsewhere around the world.
“The Mysterious Library: A Coloring Book Journey Into Fables will transport you on a quest into your favorite fairy tales, with over sixty-two pages of gorgeously-detailed pen and ink artwork to color, by Korean illustrator Eunji Park.
This coloring book features a visual narrative about a young lady who discovers a strange library in the forest. As she picks up a book, she is transported into a storybook world, where she herself transforms into its heroine. To return home, she must find a hidden key, while traveling through various works of literature and fables, from Hansel and Gretel to Cinderella, from Alice in Wonderland to Rapunzel, and beyond.
The Mysterious Library includes dazzling drawings of fanciful locations and beautiful scenery, fantastic animals, and an appealing heroine. The book includes extra-thick craft paper, ideal for coloring, and will delight colorists of all ages and skill levels.”
