compass_rose_bw_144247 NEWS – THE EXPLORERS CLUB coming fall 2016!

Adrienne has a new three book Middle Grade book deal with Delacorte Random House for her book THE EXPLORERS CLUB!

From Publishers Weekly:

Krista Marino at Delacorte has bought Adrienne Kress’s The Explorers Club, first in a middle-grade series. The story follows a precocious boy whose life is sent spiraling into adventure after he discovers a pig in a teeny hat and returns it to its home at the mysterious Explorers Club. Publication is scheduled for fall 2016; Jessica Regel at Foundry Literary + Media negotiated the three-book deal for North American rights.

A little bit about the series: Yes the catalyst for adventure is a pig in a teeny hat but there’s even more to the book (can there be more after a pig in a teeny hat?? Need there be more??)!

Set in a similar kind of world to Alex and the Ironic Gentleman and Timothy and the Dragon’s Gate, two kids, Sebastian and Evie, set out to reunite the formerly famous explorer team the Filipendulous Five, who disbanded many years ago and no one knows why, in order to rescue their leader (who also happens to be Evie’s grandfather and only remaining living relative).

There’s a lot more to it but, you know, that’s why you need to read the book!

♠  NEWS – HATTER MADIGAN: GHOST IN THE H.A.T.B.O.X.

For the last several months Adrienne has been working/writing very closely with the incredible NY Times bestselling author Frank Beddor (The Looking Glass Wars, Hatter M Graphic Novel Series) on a prequel series set in his magical version of Wonderland called HATTER MADIGAN: GHOST IN THE H.A.T.B.O.X.

It’s the story of 13 yearold Hatter Madigan who is training at the Millinery Academy with similar cadets to become one of Wonderland’s protectors: either a bodyguard, spy, strategist etc. 

The book will be out March 2016, and already has some great buzz surrounding it! The cover was even revealed on The View!
