It seems that most of their clients do picture books.

Lol, I'm the last entry (below) for my previous MS.
Does this agent still read slush?

@glyfisher: I have it on my notes that they're a 'no response = no thanks' agency

Closed this out after 6 weeks (ER - two picture books 4/15/14 closed on 6/3). Did anyone ever hear back from this agent (good or bad) after six weeks?

Good luck Tangled!!

Luv2, the book she liked was about a boy and a dragon. When I scan the spreads they are at 300 dpi (or ppi), but when you convert it to a pdf file through photoshop, choose the *for web and online viewing, option. That will convert the whole book down to 2mg file size so it can be sent through email. Hope that helps :)

YAY! Marcia is awesome. I really hope she likes it. She requested the synopsis of books 2-3 as well and said it would be at least 3 weeks. So, fingers are crossed.
