BOOK SHELF: In N.Y., John Williams reported Mets P R.A. Dickey has “signed a deal to publish three children’s books with Dial, an imprint of the publisher Penguin.” The first book, to “appear in fall 2013,” will be an adaptation of his memoir “Wherever I Wind Up.” That will be followed “by two picture books.” The first, slated for spring ‘14, will be titled “Knuckleball Ned.” Penguin said that the book is “in the early stages and still awaiting an illustrator” (NYTIMES.com, 9/7).
