Wesley Adams at Farrar, Straus and Giroux has acquired North American rights to Brian Falkner's untitled, two-volume YA alt-history in which Napoleon crashes his way to victory at Waterloo by unleashing an unstoppable battlefield weapon: a legion of giant, carnivorous dinosaurs, imported from the wilds of the unexplored Americas. Only a boy who knows the emperor's secret to commanding the beasts stands in the way of his plan for world domination.
Publication for volume one is scheduled for June 2015, the bicentennial of Waterloo.
Nancy Gallt of the Nancy Gallt Agency was the agent for North American rights on behalf of the Frances Plumpton Literary Agency.
Walker Books Australia, which holds foreign language rights, will publish its edition simultaneously.
