McMullan Joins the Julie Andrews Team
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers has announced the selection of an illustrator for one of its bigger fall titles, Julie Andrews' Collection of Poems, Songs, and Lullabies by Andrews and her daughter, Emma Watson Hamilton. Illustrator James McMullan (I'm Dirty!) will provide watercolor artwork for the book, which will feature nearly 150 works—hand-selected by Andrews and Hamilton—by writers ranging from Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson to Jack Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein. The anthology, which also includes a CD with original music as well as 20 poems read by the authors, arrives this October with a 200,000-copy first printing.
