Woohoo!

My debut picture book TRICKY CHOPSTICKS [Spring 2024, Atheneum/Simon & Schuster] has been officially announced! Here is the listing from Publisher's Weekly Children's Bookshelf, and if you want to read more about how this book came about, please check out this #PBParty Success Story.

Kristie Choi and Reka Simonsen at Atheneum have bought world rights to Tricky Chopsticks, a picture book by debut author Sylvia Chen (l.), illustrated by Fanny Liem. In this story loosely inspired by Chen's childhood, a girl determined to hold her own in her family's annual chopsticks challenge creates a solution through STEAM trial and error to master those slippery, oh-so-tricky chopsticks. Publication is slated for spring 2024; Alyssa Eisner Henkin of Birch Path Literary represented the author, and Christy Ewers at the CAT Agency represented the artist.
