Little Island have sold Swedish rights for the first two books in new series Wulfie by Lindsay J Sedgwick and illustrated by Josephine Wolff, to B. Wahlströms Bokförlag. Acquiring editor was Louella Bergman and the deal came about via Sophie Clarke at Schlingmann Literary Scouting Ltd.
Publisher at Little Island, Matthew Parkinson-Bennett says, ‘I’m especially pleased that they opted for a 2-book deal without having read the second manuscript, such was their enthusiasm for the first title and the characters.’
Aimed at 6-9-year-olds, the first book in the series, Stage Fright, publishes in Ireland on 3 September 2020. It will publish in Sweden in May 2021.
