How They Came to Us
Maryann and Danielle have known each other forever so when Maryann asked Danielle for some advice on getting an agent, Danielle welcomed the opportunity to catch up over coffee. And then Maryann sent the text for Téo’s Tutu and Danielle fell in love with the story in a way she never had with any picture book before. She told Maryann they absolutely needed to work together and the rest is history! Téo’s Tutu sold at auction and is set for publication in 2021.
