So, I have been working on this for a long time. I never imagined it would be so hard to write a query letter for a publishing agent. I have looked at many samples, visited lots of different sites and read many different ways of putting it together. This is what I came up with. Thoughts? Any feedback would be appreciated greatly.

For the Attention of Submissions Editor

Dear (Editor):

I am requesting to submit my manuscript for your evaluation. "Running Free" is a 19 page, 3,669-word Children's Picture Book about four unusual animal friends who come face-to-face with the biggest threat in the animal kingdom. Man.

Kids love animals, and "Running Free" has them - but these are no ordinary animals. Honeysuckle, the raccoon, reminisces of an adventure that changed the lives of her friends and herself. Gray the wolf, Laley the tiger and Pork Chop the warthog join her in this tale of wits and friendship.

Captured by humans, they are taken to a laboratory where they immediately plot an escape. Brilliantly outwitting their captors, they make a break for it only to find themselves blocked by the one man who captured them.
For some reason, this particular human strikes a great fear in Laley, and it is up to her to prevent him from capturing them again.
Can she face her fears in time to save her friends and herself?

"Running Free" is my first book, and I'd be happy to provide the manuscript upon request.

Thank you for your time and consideration! I look forward to hearing from you.

I am an artist of some kind, writer, video gamer, photographer and probably the most unhappy person you'd meet.

I LOVE the Halo franchise! I can play the heck out of the games, but mostly Reach. I absolutely love the Sangheili! Especially the Reach style Ultra. They are almost my second biggest obsession! You can tell by my flood of screenshots XD My gamertag is DuchessofDismal if you ever wanna get together for some firefight matchmaking.

I do random role-playing, but only with my close friends. My RP names are, Aria (Halo, ODST, Sergeant Grade 1), Tess (Invader Zim, Rebel, Wannabe Tallest), Nescafe (Neopets, Mutant Grundo) and Anya aka Achievement Hunter (Creepypasta). Yep, I'm a Nerd. What can I say?

I was in the Navy for 4 years and then the Army about a year. I hated it and so got out. The Navy was the best part of my life and I really wish I hadn't screwed up by going to the Army. Oh well. Live and learn.

I'm an obsessive lion king fan and I am not ashamed. Cats are my number one and aliens are my biggest fascination. Yes, I am weired, but who isn't. I'm just a little weirder then normal.
Hope I didn't scare you :)

Even though there is quite an age gap between us, I feel we relate more. We're both kinda like the black sheep in our families.

Are you thinking about making a Destiny OC? (Like the Captain or a character)
