The Epic Adventures of Huggie & Stick — Daywalt, Drew, — When a grumpy stuffed bunny and a happy-go-lucky stick fall out of their boy's backpack, they embark on an odyssey that takes them all around the world, experiencing one crazy adventure after another.Following their tumble from Reese’s backpack, Huggie, a worn and curmudgeonly stuffed rabbit, and Stick, an optimistic branch, embark on a weeklong adventure that spans all seven continents. Diary entries written by each traveler tell the story, and their wildly different personalities become clear. Stick is perpetually positive, seeing the best in every situation: while hitching a ride with a kangaroo (“a giant mouse with a POCKET on her tummy”) in Australia, Stick breaks his companion’s fall when he slips out of the pocket, writing “Thank goodness I was there or he could have been hurt!” Huggie’s entry, written on a bandage wrapper, isn’t quite so rosy: “Dear Diary, There’s a stick up my butt.” Debuting illustrator Spencer’s cartoonish illustrations pair well with Daywalt’s text of two travelers, heightening the characters’ incongruity through facial expressions and body language (while walking the plank, Stick smiles wide, tucking into cannonball position as he jumps, while Huggie fiercely glares back at the pirates). Beyond the silly, the book promotes neither perspective as “right”—whether grumpy or gleeful, both characters’ ways are valid. Ages 4–8.

I’m seeking unique voices in fiction for young people, stories that move readers, moments that make me look up and say “Wow, yes. I’ve felt that.”
Send me the books kids will sneak / steal / borrow in secret. Those personal, dangerous, life-saving stories. I'm looking for boundary pushers, a pitch that makes (certain) people say, 'You can't write a YA / MG about THAT!!' I want beautiful, character-driven YA and MG that connects like an emotional gut-punch. I love the strange, iconoclastic, and unusual.
I’m drawn to contemporary realistic stories with strong hooks, as well as fresh fantasy and speculative fiction set in our world and others. I love funny, quirky, and spooky, as well as joyful and uplifting stories. I believe that we need diverse books and I am actively seeking #ownvoices projects. I want books that keep me turning the page. I love proactive protagonists, kids and teens chasing a dream or a hero who swings in with a song in her heart and a knife in her teeth.
WHAT I’M NOT LOOKING FOR: Picture book texts. I also tend to shy away from novels with talking animals, sports stories, and poetry.
ABOUT ME: I'm a literary agent and Vice President at Folio Literary Management, where I represent a diverse list of voices in young adult, middle-grade, picture books, and everything in between.
IN MY FIFTH-GRADE BACKPACK: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson, Dogs Don’t Tell Jokes by Louis Sachar, The Indispensable Calvin & Hobbes by Bill Watterson, chewing gum, a notebook filled with drawings of robots.
ON MY NIGHT STAND TODAY: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, The Miseducation of Cameron Post by emily m. danforth, Miles Morales: Spider-Man by Jason Reynolds, Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan, an empty cup of coffee, a notebook filled with slightly-less-bad drawings of robots.
HOW I WORK: As an author myself, I bring both a creative and commercial sensibility to my agenting style. I’m an editorial agent who works closely with my clients, whether it’s developing a debut project or helping a seasoned author achieve that breakout novel. My goal is always to match authors with their dream editor, to secure the best deals possible, and grow an author’s readership over a long career.
