HEAL PLANET, JULIAN URGES KIDS IN BOOK

By Posted on 0 23

Julian is the coauthor of “Heal the Earth,” the second in his picture book series teaching kids as young as three years old ways to help the planet.

“I wish I had this book when I was at this age growing up,” he said in a recent interview. “I wish we’d all had it growing up. The world would be I think a different place.” The latest book follows a group of children as they fly across the globe, learning to protect coral reefs and planting gardens in cities and trees in the rainforest. “Every day there is something new we can do to heal the Earth,” the book says. “If we work together.”
Each book in the series — “Touch the Earth” was the first last year and the third will be “Love the Earth” — are timed to come out a year apart on Earth Day.

Mark Gompertz, an editorial director at Skyhorse Publishing, said Julian and coauthor Bart Davis (as well as illustrator Smiljana Coh) tried to keep the book entertaining without diluting the message.
“It’s kind of the way he writes a song — every word has a certain weight and a certain meaning … We wanted to make it not scary but, at the same time, create an awareness,” Gompertz said.
This year, Julian said, he had watched with alarm as the White House rolled back many environmental rules, including emissions standards for cars and trucks and pulling the United States out of the Paris climate accords.

GAUMONT TO TURN JULIAN LENNON’S ‘TOUCH THE EARTH’ INTO ANIMATED TV SERIES

By Posted on 0 17

Gaumont has made a deal to turn Julian Lennon’s book trilogy Touch The Earth into an animated TV series. The second volume, Heal The Earth, gets published this month by Sky Pony Press.
Julian and his children’s book collaborator Bart Davis will be executive producers and will work on the project with Gaumont President of Animation Nicolas Atlan, and Terry Kalagian, Senior Vice President, Creative Development for Animation & Family. Kimberly Dennison will be the presiding exec.
The adventure preschool series invites readers to board the magical White Feather airplane and aid in the preservation of the planet’s oceans and water supplies, with themes of environmentalism and social issues running through its episodes.
“It is an exciting time as we engage in the process of connecting the right creatives to the project who will share the passion for the show’s messages and themes,” Julian said in a statement. “I am truly enthusiastic about working with Gaumont and appreciate the sensitive energy and insight given the entire Touch the Earth series.” Co-author Davis said the goal is to empower more kids.
Gaumont is separately developing an animated feature based on High in the Clouds, the book by Julian’s longtime Beatles songwriting partner Paul McCartney, who wrote it with Ardagh. Julian has long been interested in environmentalism, founding The White Feather Foundation in 2007 and producing the docu Whaledreamers that played Cannes in 2007.

Julian and Davis are repped by Trident Media Group chairman Robert Gottlieb, along with Alyssa Henkin and Erica Silverman.
