Imag­ine a new pic­ture book based on a fa­mous song. Houghton Mif­flin Har­court told The As­so­ci­ated Press on Mon­day that it was pub­lish­ing "Imag­ine," in­spired by the John Len­non clas­sic of the same name and au­tho­rized by his widow, Yoko Ono. With il­lus­tra­tions by Jean Jul­lien, the book will fea­ture Len­non's lyrics as it tells of a young pi­geon's mis­sion to ad­vo­cate for peace.

"Imag­ine" comes out Sept 21, the United Na­tions' In­ter­na­tional Day of Peace. It will be re­leased in part­ner­ship with Amnesty In­ter­na­tional, which will re­ceive some of the pro­ceeds. In re­cent years, Bob Dy­lan's "Blowin' in the Wind" and Bruce Spring­steen's "Out­law Pete" have also in­spired pic­ture books. — AP
