The audio rights for Joan Marie Galat's MORTIMER: RAT RACE TO SPACE have sold to Kim Budnick at Tantor Media by Stacey Kondla at The Rights Factory.
MORTIMER is a fun and quirky adventure in which a journal-keeping rat on the International Space Station (ISS) becomes certain his species is better suited than humans when it comes to colonizing Mars. He aims to prove his point and elevate the human perception of rats by conducting experiments and recording the video for his YouTube channel.
"MORTIMER is quirky and hilarious, but also smart,” says TRF agent Stacey Kondla. “Reading this book is so much fun that you don't realize you are also learning things about space and scientific method, and I can't wait to hear Mortimer's voice brought to life in an audiobook."
The audio book is set for publication in spring 2023.
