This is part of our BLACK SHEEP imprint for young readers.

Akashic's only other picture book for children is also music-themed -- I Love You Too by Ziggy Marley -- and has sold very well.

Very strong gift book potential.

This is likely the first in a series of books, including What Is Hip Hop? What Is Classic Rock? etc.

Eric Morse will be very involved in the promotion, and has a background in marketing and music, which should have great payoff.

Akashic is very tied into the punk/indie music world and have had great success in this area.

Publicize to major dailies, weeklies, literary publications, alternative publications. Major radio and television push.

Akashic's promotion will have a strong social media component.
