On her web site: "She represents picture books, chapter books, and middle grade novels, with picture books being her sweet spot."

EQ: Mar. 21 auto-r. confirming receipt and saying they'll respond within 2 weeks if they wish to see more. The website says 6-8 weeks. Confusing!

Note: This agency has an emphasis on picture books and true children's literature, as opposed to YA.

@jancoates Well, at least it's nice to know it's a concept they like, even if somebody else got there first with that agency.

3-day personal e-ject - too similar to title they already represent.

@orangrila I'd wait the 6-8 weeks if you don't hear anything. It is small enough that if one passes, it is probably a pass for both anyway, so it is only a matter of whether you mark it CNR sooner (unless they want more, in which case, all is moot).
