Illustrated by Paul Rogers

Bob Dylan’s hit song Forever Young takes on new life as a colorful children’s book cleverly illustrated by Paul Rogers. The story follows a young Dylan through his early performances, education, travels and protests. The book allows children to connect visually and historically with Dylan in the context of 1960s counterculture. He is pictured alongside icons like: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, and Joan Baez in the East Village of NYC. Each page features a lyric and corresponding illustration in which Rogers has hidden details of Dylan’s life and songs. Readers of all ages will enjoy uncovering these hidden histories as they sing along to the beloved lyrics of Forever Young. This collaboration between Dylan and Rogers won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016 and continues to be one of our Best Sellers at Barner Books!
