Barb McNally at Sleeping Bear has bought world rights to Ann Ingalls (l.) and Sue Lowell Gallion’s Tip and Tucker early reader series, the story of two very different hamster friends: one bold and adventurous, the other timid and cautious. But everything changes as the two friends venture out into the larger world at Berrybrook School. Andre Ceolin will illustrate. Book one is planned for March 2019, and book two for fall 2019; Karen Grencik at Red Fox Literary represented the authors, and Mela Bolinao at MB Artists represented the illustrator.
