maya soetoro-ng's book deal

News is out that Maya Soetoro-Ng, sister to President Barack Obama, has signed a deal to write a picture book inspired by her late mother. In the book, Ladder to the Moon, she'll imagine what her four-year-old daughter would have learned from her grandmother if the two had ever met: Obama's sister signs book deal.

According to the press release from Candlewick Press, in the book, she "pays homage to her mother's tradition of storytelling -- a celebrates her mother's enduring legacy of service -- with an unforgettable story of love and compassion being passed along generations."

Soetoro-Ng and Obama's mother died of ovarian cancer in 1995. I'm pretty sure she knew that her kids are awesome. As for the book, I don't know about you, but these days, I could use an unforgettable story of love and compassion. No word yet on when the book will be published.. but where to I pre-order?
