Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Little Simon, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, have teamed to transform two songs by John Lennon and Paul McCartney into picture books.

Epic Rights, Sony/ ATV’s global licensing agent, brokered the deal.

The first book, All You Need is Love, will feature lyrics from the eponymous song as well as art from illustrator Marc Rosenthal.

“This timeless song rings true now more than ever,” says Valerie Garfield, vice president and publisher, Little Simon “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.”

All You Need is Love will hit store shelves in January. A second book is set to be released in the future.
