Review quote

"An inviting, relevant, and timely message of tolerance, inclusiveness, unity, and peace. Just imagine." * Kirkus Reviews * "For fans of Lennon's song eager to introduce it to a new generation, Jullien's panoply of boldly outlined, lovable birds offers an accessible entry point to ideas of peace, kindness, and justice." * Publisher's Weekly * 'The artist's boldly outlined images...have a simple, heartfelt poignancy that make this beautiful book the perfect starting point for introducing Lennon's message of tolerance, understanding, inclusiveness, unity and peace to today's children. It's certainly as relevant as when it was written over 45 years ago: indeed, we desperately need it now even more than ever.' * Red Reading Hub * "effective and very poignant" * The Bookseller * 'A lovely picture book' * Angels & Urchins * Children's Book of the Week: 'lovely to read to your child during these troubled times.' * The Sun * '[the] message is as relevant to society today as it was when it was released' * Design Boom *

About John Lennon

John Lennon was a singer, songwriter, peace and human rights activist, author, artist, and continues to be a worldwide inspiration. Born in 1940 in Liverpool, he rose to fame with his band The Beatles in the 1960s, and went on to have an acclaimed solo career until his death in 1980. Lennon's marriage and collaboration with artist Yoko Ono inspired his iconic peace anthem "Imagine". Among Lennon's books which are collections of his stories and drawings are: In His Own Write, A Spaniard in the Works, Skywriting by Word of Mouth, AI - Japan Through John Lennon's Eyes, and Real Love- the Drawings for Sean.

Yoko Ono Lennon is an artist whose thought-provoking work challenges people's understanding of art and the world around them. From the beginning of her career, she was a conceptualist whose work encompassed performance, instructions, film, music, sculpture, installation and writing. Born in Tokyo, she moved to New York aged twenty and opened her Chambers Street loft in 1960, where she hosted exhibitions and performances. She has shown her work all over the world, including several films and her first retrospective, in France in 2016. In 2007, Ono created the permanent installation IMAGINE PEACE TOWER on Videy Island, Iceland, and continues to work tirelessly for peace with her IMAGINE PEACE campaign. In 2009 Ono received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement from the Venice Biennale.
