After three years in development, I'm so happy to tell the world about Swatch! She pubs in early 2016 with Balzer + Bray. PW announcement here:
"Alessandra Balzer of HarperCollins imprint Balzer + Bray pre-empted world rights to Swatch, Color-Tamer, a picture book by Julia Denos that marks her debut as an author-illustrator. It tells of a girl named Swatch who wants to harness the power of colors so she can create her own masterpiece – only to find that colors have a will of their own. The book is slated for winter 2016; Brenda Bowen of Sanford J. Greenburger Associates was the agent."
