Hey, you know what’s great? The Sesame Street theme song. It’s catchy, it’s 50 years old, and it’s a huge part of the show we all love so very, very much. So why not immortalize it in book form?
Entertainment Weekly has announced that “Sunny Day”, reimagining the lyrics to the theme song, will be printed as a picture book by Random House.
Each page will illustrate one lyric of the song, with art by the following Random House artists: Ziyue Chen, Joe Mathieu, Tom Lichtenheld, Sean Qualls, Selina Alko, Emily Winfield Martin, Joey Chou, Kenard Pak, Rafael López, Pat Cummings, Brigette Barrager, Vanessa Brantley-Newton, Leo Espinosa, Mike Curato, Greg Pizzoli, and Dan Santat.
The lyrics, of course, are credited to Joe Raposo, Bruce Hart, and Jon Stone.
The book will be available on October 22nd, just in time for the 50th anniversary! Check out a few preview pages below!
