Simon & Schuster Children's Books has bought another two books by Waterstone's Children’s Book Prize winner, Michelle Harrison, in a five-figure deal.
Harrison's debut novel, The Thirteen Treasures was a mystery adventure book for children aged 11 and over. Published by S&S in January this year, it won the 2009 Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize. The sequel, The Thirteen Curses, will be published in January 2010.
One of the novels in the new deal will be another title in the same series, entitled The Thirteen Wards. Harrison said it would be a "return to Elvesden Manor for a third fairy story". The second contracted title will be a paranormal stand-alone novel. Harrison called it, "something very new and different".
