Greetings, Picture Book Partiers. We're always looking out to see who is up to what in publishing PBs, so here's something to know. Charlesbridge Publishing has acquired Imagine Publishing, as you'll see in this article in Publishers Weekly here. Click on the announcement on Charlesbridge's home page here and Imagine's here. There's some more background from last year on Galleycat here. Harold Underdown, on The Purple Crayon commented, "Imagine has a small children's line but a larger adult one, so Charlesbridge is moving into the adult market--not a common step for a children's-only publisher to take." Hmmm!
