Transatlantic is beyond excited to announce that world rights to award-winning author and storyteller Rukhsana Khan’s RABIA’S EID, illustrated by Debby Rahmalia, has been acquired by Heidi Kilgras at Random House Children’s Books for the Step Into Reading series!

RABIA’S EID tells a story on Eid-al-fitr—the last day of Ramadan, which means it is the last day for Rabia to fast with the rest of her family, something she has never done before. 

Publication is scheduled for the winter of 2024! 

Rob Firing and Amy Tompkins handled the deal on behalf of the author.
