Actress Julianna Margulies to Write Picture Book Story
Editorial Director Maria Modugno handled the acquisitions process. Random House Children’s Books will release Three Magic Balloons in May 2016.
Three Magic Balloons centers on a trio of sisters whose father every week takes them to the zoo, where a vendor rewards their kindness to the animals by giving them balloons that carry them off on a magical, nighttime adventure. Margulies and her sisters discovered the manuscript while going through their father’s papers after his death last October. Paul Margulies was an advertising executive who also wrote essays and plays, as well as stories for children. (Publishers Weekly)
