In 2012, TOON released seven new books, the most we’ve ever had in one year. In the spring, we released Chick and Chickie, Zig and Wikki in The Cow, and The Shark King, while the fall saw the premiere of Maya Makes a Mess, Benny and Penny in Light’s Out!, A Trip to the Bottom of the World and The Stone Frog (TOON’s first graphic novel!).

We’re very excited for 2013 -- which will bring a batch of brand-new paperback editions as well as some wonderful new titles -- but before we look forward, we wanted to take a look back at some of the highlights of the year. And don’t forget, TOON’s holiday packs for different levels include many of our 2012 favorites, at nearly half off the original prices.

My name is Michael Garland. I write and illustrate picture books. You can see my work on my web site.
This year I had a book on the Kirkus Review top 25 picture book list and another book in the Original art Show.
I've been on the NY Times best seller list four times.
I've written a book that I think might be appropriate to your Toon Book imprint.
Could I submit a pdf book proposal?
Thanks, MG
