The “Happy” hit number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 list, which topped the charts in more than seventy-five countries worldwide has now come to life in a picture book! This is Pharrell Williams’s very first picture book. He brings his beloved song to the youngest of readers with photographs of children across different cultures celebrating what it means to be happy.
All the exuberance of the song pulses from these vibrant photographs of excited, happy kids. This is a picture book full of memorable, precious childhood moments that will move readers in the same way they were moved by the song.
Happy is a picture book with lyrics written by Pharrell Williams and photos illustrated by Kristin Smith. This is perfect for sharing and reading together. It was released on 8th October 2015 and published by Penguin Random House. It is available to buy in good book stores and Amazon.
The book is hardback containing about 32 pages. The font comes in various sizes with very beautiful happy faces in the photo illustrations.
If you remember the song (featured in Despicable Me 2), you will know all the words in this book which follows the lyrics. This is an interesting book which evokes happy memories and will particularly appeal to those who are fans of the song.
