I am thrilled to announce that the French publishing house, Éditions Rageot, has acquired French rights to Maresi and Naondel! Rageot, founded in 1941, is part of the Hachette Group, and is home to authors such as Katherine Paterson, Margaret Haddix, and Pierre Bottero. Rights to Maresi are now sold in 14 territories!
“I love reading the Guardian on Saturday. Last week end, I surfed around the children books section and found this very enthusiastic review about Maresi. I started gathering information and was so excited about it that I wrote to Elina* around midnight. She sent me the files on Sunday : I started reading and couldn't stop! Maresi is so powerful with its poignant plot, its fantasy world, and its values that I was caught from the beginning to the end. Moreover, this strong female character with her personal quest is very much linked to our best-selling author, the late Pierre Bottero. Thus, it seemed essential for me to publish this book and make the French readers discover it! “
