    My agent, Anna Olswanger, has sold at least a few picture books to them. They're very, very legit.
    Help! I need feedback on my personal essay/memoir!

    One of the sales was listed in Publishers Marketplace as a "nice deal," which would indicate yes. But it was a couple years ago and things can always change.

    I can't imagine an Agent of Anna's stature selling to a publisher that doesn't pay advances but just double checked in SCBWI's "The Book" and they do pay advances against royalties but are closed to unsolicited subs.

    I'm familiar with their picture books and board books - they are on the shelves of bookstores big and small in my area. They have a lot of regionally-themed picture books for the Great Lakes area (Legend of Sleeping Bear, Tallulah - Mermaid of the Great Lakes, etc) and they are popular, well-produced, quality books. In the midwest they are distributed by Abraham Associates which has a sales team that visits stores, and their books are available through wholesalers like Ingram at industry standard terms.

    Definitely legit.
