Lynn Johnston to publish children’s book

From an interview with Brenda Bowen on the Publisher’s Weekly blog comes news that For Better or For Worse creator Lynn Johnston will publish a full-color children’s picture book that is scheduled to hit bookstores next summer.

She says,

In summer â??09, we also have a book by cartoonist Lynn Johnston, who is the author and artist of the long running comic strip For Better, for Worse. It is a full-color picture book for children from four to seven years old. It is about a dog who loves to eat and doesnâ??t care about what he is eating, and he gets lost following one delicious scent after another, and then after a day of being lost he comes home. You will see that the family in For Better, for Worse is in the pictures. Although they wonâ??t be identified as that, but it will be appealing to the readers of the strip.
