Little Acorn's Big Fall
My first complete picture book I ever wrote was Little Acorn's Big Fall. When I thought the manuscript was ready, I sent out a few queries to agents looking for picture books. I caught the interest of one Literary Agent, but haven't heard a peep from her yet. I'm thinking it may be time to move on and send it elsewhere.
The sweet story has a special place in my heart, and I hope to see it in print one day. My main character is Little Acorn who struggles with the weight of his responsibilities of becoming a tree. What he's really worried about now that he's forced from his father's branch, are hungry squirrels or even worse, rolling away and getting lost! Little Acorn wonders if he'll be the successful 1 out of 10,000 acorns to survive.
Written in a flowing AABB rhyme scheme, Little Acorn's Big Fall is on the hunt to find the perfect literary agency or publishing house, where together, they can create harmony in the world of children's books.
