McElderry Books to publish Emily Carroll’s His Face All Red and Other Stories

Simon & Shuster’s Margaret K. McElderry Books has purchased the publication rights to Emily Carroll’s His Face All Red and Other Stories which will feature her 2011 Joe Shuster Award-winning webcomics and other “Halloween-themed” work, in a manner the publisher says will be evocative of Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

No publication date was announced, but given the nature, perhaps Fall 2012? Congratulations Emily Carroll.

Thanks to Bryan Munn at Sequential for pointing this out.
