ANNOUNCING: More Dogsledding Adventure!
Dog Driven coming in 2019
From Publishers Weekly—Ann Rider at HMH has bought, in an exclusive submission, Dog Driven, a middle grade novel by Ice Dogs author Terry Lynn Johnson. A 14-year-old girl fears that she is losing her sight to Stargardt's Disease, as her sister did. Despite her sight impairment, she enters a dogsled race that follows the historic Canadian dogsled mail along Lake Superior, with unexpected results. Publication is planned for fall 2019; Caryn Wiseman at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency brokered the deal for world rights.

Sled Dog School is a Bank Street's Best Books of the Year and a Scholastic Book Fairs selection.

Falcon Wild is a Scholastic Book Fairs selection for 2018, a nominee for the 2018-2019 Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award (Vermont State) and a MYRCA Northern Lights nominee.

Overboard! is a Cybils Award finalist, a Beehive Award 2019 nominee (Utah State) and made the Horned Toad Tales 2018-19 list (Cypress-Fairbanks District, Texas).
