Danielle Steel To Publish a Picture Book for Kids

Bestselling romance novelist Danielle Steel has landed a book deal for a picture book for kids.

Doubleday Books for Young Readers will publish Pretty Minnie in Paris in fall 2014. Janklow & Nesbit Associates agent Julie Just negotiated the deal with editorial director Frances Gilbert. Gilbert will edit and Kristi Valiant will illustrate the book. Here’s more from the release:

Steel has one passion that her fans might not know about—her love for dogs. Pretty Minnie in Paris is inspired by the adventures of Steel’s own teacup Chihuahua, and her love of Paris—where she resides part of the year. Steel’s picture book tells the stylish tale of a fashionable Parisian pup out on the town … Steel lives in San Francisco and Paris, which inspired many of the scenes in Pretty Minnie in Paris. Over the years she has raised several beloved dogs, and this October 2013 brings the release of her next nonfiction work, Pure Joy (Delacorte Press), a memoir of Steel’s most beloved family pets.
