It's A Book Deal!

When your deal appears in Publisher's Marketplace, you know it's official:

"Loralee Leavitt's CANDY EXPERIMENTS, a collection of simple, hands-on experiments that use store-bought candy to teach kids basic science, to Patty Rice at Andrews McMeel, by Myrsini Stephanides at the Carol Mann Agency (World)."
