COMING SEPTEMBER 2021
To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of one of the top songs of the twentieth century, “American Pie,” this new children’s book weave’s themes from the iconic song with experiences from Don’s early life and, in true “American Pie” form, offers meaningful elements open to interpretation. “American Pie” is the story of a newspaper delivery boy in the late ’50s who discovers the joy of friendship and music, eventually learning that when you recognize what truly makes you happy, you’re never really alone.
“I am really excited to see the reaction from people about this book,” says Don McLean. “We have all read many children’s books to our kids and I am hoping this one stands up to the greatness of others we have put our kids to sleep with.”
Released in 1971, “American Pie” was named one of the top five songs of the century by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Recording Industry Association of America.
