A new children’s book series based on songs by The Beatles is coming out next year. Simon and Schuster has announced the series will begin with “All You Need Is Love,” with illustrations by Marc Rosenthal. It comes out in January and a second book will be announced soon.
Valierie Garfield, Vice President and publisher of Little Simon issued this statement: “This timeless song rings true now more than ever. We feel there is always a market for books about hope, and John Lennon and Paul McCartney have written songs that resonate with parents and children who want to look at the world with hope and love.”
This isn’t the first foray into children’s literature for the Beatles. In 2014, Ringo Starr and illustrator Ben Cort collaborated on a book version of “Octopus’s Garden.” (The Canadian Press)
