According to Publisher’s Weekly, R.A. Dickey has signed a three-book deal with Penguin’s Dial Books for Young Readers.
The first book in this deal, scheduled for fall 2013, will be a young reader’s adaptation of his memoir, Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball. The second two titles in the deal will be picture books, the first of which, Knuckleball Ned, is set for spring 2014.
Matthew Cerrone, MetsBlog.com:
Well, obviously I will be buying Knuckleball Ned for my daughter whenever it is published…
This is good news for RA, but I hope to see him sell his book to be a movie… after he wins the Cy Young award this year, of course, as it will make for the perfect ending to the picture.
