New Children's Book by Lynn Johnston

Brenda Bowen, the CEO of Bowen Press, a HarperCollins imprint, talks to Publisher's Weekly about upcoming projects, including a new book by Lynn Johnston book:

"In summer ’09, we also have a book by cartoonist Lynn Johnston, who is the author and artist of the long running comic strip For Better, for Worse. It is a full-color picture book for children from four to seven years old. It is about a dog who loves to eat and doesn’t care about what he is eating, and he gets lost following one delicious scent after another, and then after a day of being lost he comes home. You will see that the family in For Better, for Worse is in the pictures. Although they won’t be identified as that, but it will be appealing to the readers of the strip."
