picture book in the works

August 17th, 2020

I’m delighted to share some exciting project news–I’ll be working with Dana Chidiac and her team at Dial BFYR on my first picture book, Nana, Nenek, and Nina!

👵 🌳 🤸‍♀️ 🌴 👵

Thanks, ta, and terimah kasih to my agent, Kurestin Armada at Root Literary, for finding Nina a great home!

From Publishers Weekly:
“Dana Chidiac at Dial has acquired world rights to Nana, Nenek, and Nina, written and illustrated by debut author Liza Ferneyhough. Nina is off to visit her grandmothers, who live in Malaysia and England respectively; while their food, clothes, and neighborhoods look quite different, they both love her exactly the same. Publication is slated for spring 2022; Kurestin Armada at Root Literary represented the author-illustrator.”

usborne book of the moon

For Moon day, I present to you the delightful book my friend Diana Toledano illustrated and I helped get out the door. I was the flatter! (Not the flatterer, although I am a big fan of Diana’s work)


Oh lunar lander. So many fiddly shapes to flat. 😱

A spread mid-flatting.
