BLOWIN’ IN THE WIND to be Published as Children’s Book

Bob Dylan

Fans of singer Bob Dylan will be happy to hear that the artist’s 1963 protest song, BLOWIN’ IN THE WIND is about to become a children’s book. According to Publishers Weekly, Jon J Muth will illustrate the first picture book edition, which will be published in November by Sterling Children’s Books.

The book will also include a CD of the original Dylan recording of the song, which was released on his album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan. Blowin’ in the Wind was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.

Frances Gilbert, v-p, publisher of Sterling Children’s Books said:

“Bob Dylan’s timeless message about war and peace is just as resonant with parents and children today as it was almost 50 years ago. With Jon J Muth’s ethereal and poetic paintings, this picture book will be a breathtaking experience for readers of all generations.”

This is isn’t the first time one of Dylan’s songs has been translated into a picture book. Previous books based on his songs include Forever Young, illustrated by Paul Rogers (Atheneum), and Man Gave Names to All the Animals, illustrated by Jim Arnosky (Sterling).
