Exciting Announcement!

I am thrilled to announce that my debut picture book OLD FRIENDS, illustrated by the wonderful Lenny Wen, will be published in Spring 2022 with Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan.

It has been an honor to work with editor, Erin Siu on this story of intergenerational friendships and I can’t wait to see how Lenny brings the story to life.


Erin Siu at Feiwel and Friends has acquired world rights to the picture book Old Friends, written by debut author Margaret Aitken (l.), illustrated by Lenny Wen. This picture book follows Marjorie, whose search for friends after the loss of her grandmother inspires her to go undercover and join the local senior citizens group. Publication is slated for spring 2022; Kaitlyn Sanchez at Olswanger Literary represented the author, and Christy Ewers at the CAT Agency represented the illustrator.
