    I am an author of children’s books. The titles of my books are, “The Water Lily Fairy,” by Mary Ann Vitale. The second book is, “The Water Lily Fairy at the Ice Cream Palace,” by Mary Ann Vitale. The books have beautiful illustrations, and have been published by Authorhouse. They are for children age 7 to 10. I would like to know how I can have my books enrolled with Scholastic. I appreciate some information. Sincerely, Mary Ann Vitale

      Hi Mary Ann! Scholastic and most other children’s book publishers do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. Most works are submitted by literary agents or are created under a contract.

      Our Editorial Department suggests that you may want to consult the current issue of the Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market. It retails in the $20.00 range and should be available at most public libraries. They feel this book is helpful for aspiring children’s writers.

      We wish you success in your writing endeavors and hope this information is helpful.
