Macmillan Children's Books has announced the acquisition of world rights in four new novels by Gwyneth Rees. The deal, for a six-figure sum, was brokered by Caroline Walsh of David Higham Associates.

The Macmillan Press Release says that Rees qualified as a doctor and practised as a child and adolescent psychiatrist for some years, before giving up her medical career to write full time.

THE MUM HUNT won the Award for Younger Children in the Red House Children's Book Award 2004. MY MUM'S FROM PLANET PLUTO has been longlisted for the Carnegie Medal and shortlisted for the Sheffield Book Award. Her Fairies series achieves ever-increasing sales, with the third title, FAIRY DREAMS, publishing in May 2005. She has also been selected to write a World Book Day 2006 title.

This new four-book deal takes Macmillan's publishing programme of Gwyneth Rees's books up to the end of 2008.

Sarah Davies, Publishing Director of Macmillan Children's Books, says, 'Gwyneth Rees is a star. She has an incredible ability to connect with children in a way that is always entertaining but also very insightful. I am delighted that this new deal will enable us to continue building Gwyneth's profile and sales well into the future.'
