Announcing Wild Symphony!

Dan Brown makes his children's picture book debut

Wild Symphony is a uniquely entertaining picture book experience in which the playful Maestro Mouse, trusty baton in hand, brings readers along as he visits a variety of animal friends, from cheetahs and kangaroos to elephants and blue whales. Each beautifully illustrated spread is dedicated to a different animal and offers a piece of mindful wisdom for navigating life. Susan Batori’s illustrations add kid-friendly humor, and additional clues and puzzles are hidden in the detailed backgrounds for interested readers of all ages.

Children and adults can enjoy this timeless picture book as a traditional read-along, or can choose to listen to the original musical compositions as they read—one for each animal—using a free interactive smartphone app, which uses augmented reality to instantly play the appropriate song for each page when the camera of a mobile device is held over it. At publication, the accompanying music app will be available for free download via the project's website and the QR code in Wild Symphony.

“I love storytelling, and my novels always attempt to weave together varied themes,” Brown explains. “With Wild Symphony, I was excited to build on this idea and create a truly layered experience by using three different languages simultaneously—art, music, and words. In the same way that an opera captivates its audience by presenting beautiful sets, dramatic music, and lyrical drama, Wild Symphony strives to be an immersive feast for eyes, ears, and mind, all at the same time.”

Wild Symphony will release on September 1, 2020 and is set to publish in 27 countries and counting. To learn more, visit WildSymphony.com and stay tuned to Dan's Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.
