Bonjour, mes amis! It’s Mercredi, so let’s have some pain au chocolat!! (I know… you guys always forget how multi-lingual I am 🙂 But really, you just heard all my French right there :))
So, petit déjeuner? (Oh, except that 🙂 Who knew?)
Mmmmm, that’s good! Kind of puts you in the mood for a picture book pitch, doesn’t it? Luckily, I have one for you right here!
Today’s pitch comes to us from Rita, whom you may all remember from last year for her part in the mini-series on self-publishing as well as for her pitch for Elephant And Dolphin last June. Living in Malta but raised in the New York City, Rita Antoinette Borg has written seven picture books and an anthology. The picture books are mostly in bilingual Maltese- English format. But her newest book is Meg The Egg and you can buy it on Amazon in English. She loves being a writer more than her previous jobs as dog walker, rubber band counter and airline ground hostess. She is a mother of three, married to a doctor, and searching hard for a new dog to love.
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 3-7)
The Pitch: A picture book for ages 3-7 about a street rat that is always hungry. When anyone sees him they all scream and want to grab him. But one day he enters a food factory with caged animals ready to be eaten. Freddie, the owner of the place, tries to capture Roberto. But Roberto is much more clever and rescues the other animals making him hero of the day.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Before you all race off to your Wednesdays, may I
beg desperately on my knees politely and not at all pushily ask anyone who hasn’t voted in the Can’t Sleep Without Sheep Jingle Contest to head over HERE and vote? I wasn’t kidding when I said the competition was fierce. We need votes! The poll will be open until noon tomorrow (Thursday.)
Rita is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to seeing who will win the Can’t Sleep Without Sheep Jingle Contest!!! How many minutes until Friday????
Have a great day, everyone! 🙂
