New Robbie Robertson Biography: For Kids

It’s never too early to teach our children about our musical legends! Sebastian Robertson, Robbie Robertson‘s son, is writing a picture book bio of his dad, aimed at 6-9 year old readers.

According to Galley Cat – The Band’s Robbie Robertson Gets Children’s Book Biography:

Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group will publish a biographical picture book profiling rock legend Robbie Robertson…

The book will include photographs and other material from Robertson’s personal collection. Editorial director Christy Ottaviano negotiated the deal with literary agent Ryan Harbage at the Fischer-Harbage Agency.

Here’s more from the release: “The book will focus on Robbie Robertson‘s early years growing up in Canada and, later, living and working in America. The son of a Native American mother and Jewish father, Robbie Robertson spent time as a child at Six Nation Indian Reservation where he received guitar lessons and excelled quickly. By the time he was sixteen, he was offered a guitarist spot with Ronnie Hawkins’s band, and then went on to become the lead guitarist and chief songwriter for the acclaimed music group, The Band.”

Hoka!
