Urrà! Rizzoli has acquired the Italian rights for The Mechanical Mind of John Coggin from The Chudney Agency. U.S. publication is scheduled for Winter/Spring 2016 by the Walden Pond imprint at HarperCollins.
Here’s a brief synopsis:
At the age of 11, John Coggin is a thwarted inventor and an expert coffin maker. When his horrible Great Aunt Beauregard decides that his sister Page should work for Coggin Family Coffins, John takes matters into his own hands. Accompanied by an accident-prone acrobat named Boz, the two siblings embark on a series of explosive adventures.
