Lemony Snicket Moves to Little, Brown

Posted on November 11, 2009

Daniel Handler, who writes the bestselling Lemony Snicket books, has moved from HarperCollins to Little, Brown. He signed a deal to write four new Lemony Snicket books and one stand alone young adult title.

In August, Egmont U.K. bought British rights to the four-book series; no U.S. publisher was announced at that time.

The Handler/Snicket team will work with longtime editor Susan Rich who has joined LBYR in the newly created position of editor-at-large. Rich was formerly at HarperCollins Children's Books, first in the New York office and then in Toronto.

A Series of Unfortunate Events was a blockbuster for HarperCollins, selling 60 million copies. We loved the series and can't wait to see Mr. Snicket has in store for us this time.
