Announcing BookEnds, Jr.

It has long been my dream for BookEnds to have a children’s division. While I never had the experience of working with children’s books myself, I have a great love for them and, of course, it is because of children’s books that I first fell in love with reading.

The road to BookEnds, Jr. started with young adult and has since grown to include picture books and middle grade. Now, almost all or our agents are acquiring some level of kid lit and we can proudly say we have bestselling and award-winning authors in the genre. With successes like that it only seemed natural that we give our kid lit authors and illustrators their own stage, much like our first picture book star, Kiely, has in I Am Famous

So without further ado, please explore our newest BookEnds division, BookEnds, Jr. This wonderful new website will show you all you need to know about the wonderful BookEnds kid lit authors and illustrators as well as the agents they work with.

I am thrilled and honored that all of these talented people, my team included, have chosen to make BookEnds a part of their fabulous careers.

  1. Congratulations, Jessica and the BookEnds team. Love the tweaks you’ve made to your logo (the little chick is a cutey).

  2. Love this, and how you announced Bookends Jr. to us by introducing the book “I am Famous.” Congratulations!

  3. I’ve been an elementary art teacher for over 23 years. Can’t wait to query my stories and illustrations to such a wonderful agency!

  4. I am seeking representation for a novel of literary fiction, set in Africa 2022. Written in the first person, the Apothecary is a 70 year old Professor of Family Medicine and Traditional Remedies, Dr Kate Bullock. Interested?
