Not a good agency

The agency's founder, attorney Sheldon Fogelman, first entered the world of publishing in 1964 through his counsel to industry luminaries such as Maurice Sendak and Meindert DeJong. Sheldon Fogelman Agency, Inc. became the very first agency to specialize in representing mostly authors and illustrators of children's books, lighting the way for the rest of the children's book publishing industry that has grown up around it. Additionally, Mr. Fogelman continued to act as Maurice Sendak's attorney for over forty years and has represented various publishers with regard to dramatic, motion picture, and television rights, including William Morrow Children's Division.
