HarperCollins Publishers announced today the acquisition of Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson’s first picture book, RIVER ROSE AND THE MAGICAL LULLABY, featuring an original lullaby written and performed by the international superstar. World rights were sold to David Linker, Executive Editor, HarperCollins Children’s Books, from CAA.
RIVER ROSE AND THE MAGICAL LULLABY is an enchanting picture book that chronicles the night before an imaginative little girl’s first trip to the zoo. River Rose is so excited to see the animals and ride the carousel that she can’t fall asleep—until a magical lullaby from her mom sends her off on an amazing adventure. Soon River Rose is hopscotching with the hippos, slip-sliding with the penguins, and dancing with the big brown bears. It’s a rollicking, rhyming tale from America’s most beloved performer, recording star Kelly Clarkson. Join along on this bedtime journey, complete with an original lullaby that parents and kids are sure to love.
With adorable illustrations by Laura Hughes, RIVER ROSE AND THE MAGICAL LULLABY is the perfect story for bedtime or reading time.
“When kids read RIVER ROSE AND THE MAGICAL LULLABY my hope is that it inspires their imagination and reminds them that they should always follow their dreams – no matter where they lead,” says Kelly Clarkson.
“The first time I heard Kelly talk about this project, I knew it was something special,” says David Linker, Executive Editor, HarperCollins Children’s Books. “Her passion for the story and musical ear for the rhythm and melody that make for great storytelling was evident from the very first draft. It’s been a true labor of love.”
