Musician Julian Lennon is co-writing his first children’s book series, about making the world a better place, with author Bart Davis.
New York literary agency Trident Media Group is looking after the series and is currently looking to sell international and domestic rights to the first title, Touch The Earth.
Trident Media said Touch The Earth is an “interactive concept – one part story, one part journey, and one part pledge to make the world a better, cleaner place”. It features musical lyrics throughout and “readers feel like they are flying across the global as they greet their final challenge to make a once arid landscape verdant again”.
Trident chairman Robert Gottlieb, who will co-agent Lennon and Davis along with group vice president Alyssa Eisner Henkin, likened the book to Press Here, the interactive picture book by French artist Herve Tullet.
“It’s an honour to be working with Julian on his first children’s title,” he said. “We’re excited to share his vision with the world.”
