The query letter
I am seeking representation for my picture book The Kissy Monster
. It is 251 words in length and is aimed at children 3 to 7 years of age.
It follows the story of a little girl running through different parts of her home from a kissy monster, who ultimately turns out to be a loving mother.
The story is whimsical in nature, and the illustrations play a vital role in telling the story. There is a list of illustration recommendations at the end of the text that help visually explain the story.
With a major in children’s literature, I am a teacher with over 20 years’ experience specializing in 4- to 8-year-old children. I’ve always been interested in writing for children, and this is the first book I’ve attempted to have published.
