A children’s book illustrated by “For Better or For Worse” creator Lynn Johnston is scheduled to be published by HarperCollins during the summer of 2009.
In a January 2008 interview with E&P, Johnston had mentioned that a children’s book was in the works.
The book will be written by Johnston’s sister-in-law, Beth Cruikshank, whose work includes the character biographies on FBorFW.com. She also assisted on two previous Johnston books.
Aimed at kids 4 to 7, the 2009 book will focus on the adventures of a dog who loves to eat.
“For Better or For Worse” — now a hybrid of new and old material — runs in more than 2,000 newspapers via Universal Press Syndicate.
