Matthew Kirby: Editor's Dream

From Publishers Weekly, Re Middle Grade Buzz Panel at BEA:

Lisa A. Sandell, executive editor at Scholastic Press,  spoke first about Icefall, describing Matthew Kirby as “an editor’s dream,” and explaining how she fell for the “uncommonly complex characters” and detail-rich setting of his first book, The Clockwork Three. Sandell said she was “totally giddy” when she received the manuscript for Icefall, which she described as the story of a Viking princess’s “journey to find herself and her place in the world.”
