The Beatles‘ “All You Need Is Love” is set to be transformed into a new children’s book. Another book will also be released in the future based on another, yet to be announced, Beatles song.
The book, featuring illustrations by Marc Rosenthal, will be released in January through the imprint Little Simon. The second book will be announced at a future date.
“This timeless song rings true now more than ever,” said Valerie Garfield, Vice President and Publisher of Little Simon in a statement. “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.”
The books will be released through a licensing agreement with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Sony/ATV’s Global Licensing Agent, Epic Rights.
Other picture books have been based on Beatles songs. In 2014, Ringo Starr collaborated with illustrator Ben Cort on an adaptation of “Octopus’s Garden.”
