NEWS FLASH! I just had a great time doing an interview on the Great Big Beautiful Podcast with Jamie Green from Roarbots. We talk about everything from memory to King Arthur to comics and our favorite museums. Oh, and talking animals of course. You can check it out here:

Please check out my Instagram page (where I post sketches and, well, lots of baby animals!) :

The Wonderling is now available across the globe! AND...The U.S. version will be out in paperback on October 8th! I will be doing some book events to celebrate the paperback launch from now until the spring of 2020, so click HERE for upcoming events to see if I’ll be doing events in a town near you. 

NEWS FLASH! There will be a sequel! I’m working hard on the next one in the series, entitled The Wonderling: Singing Tree. And...the feature film version, directed by Stephen Daldry, is still in development, but should be out in a couple years. I’ll keep you updated when I can. In the meantime, I hope to see some of you when I’m on the road this year. And don’t forget to support your local bookstores and libraries. Thanks!

“...This beguiling fiction debut from Bartók is just the ticket for readers who revel in quest stories, or those with a soft spot for animal fantasies...With a movie already underway, this book seems preordained for popularity.” Booklist
