Daria Harper at Chronicle has bought world rights to Jenn Bailey’s  A Friend for Henry, illustrated by Mika Song. Making friends is daunting for Henry, a boy on the autism spectrum. His best efforts are often misunderstood, but after an art project mix-up, and a Circle Time setback, Henry finds a way to build a friendship. The book is planned for spring 2019; the author was represented by Rosemary Stimola, and the illustrator by Erica Rand Silverman, both of Stimola Literary Studio.
