London (ANI): Veteran singer Bob Dylan's famous track 'Man Gave Names To All The Animals" has been converted into a children"s book. The 68-year-old star approved the song title for use in the project, which will feature drawings inspired by his lyrics and a CD featuring the track. "From the first time I heard it, the lyrics created pictures in my mind of a land of primeval beauty," the Daily Express quoted artist Jim Arnosky as saying.
"I thought this vision would make a dream of a book, and I asked for Bob Dylan's permission to make this dream come true. Happily, he said yes," Arnosky added. Meanwhile, Dylan is set to perform at the White House on February 10 as part of a civil rights celebration. The 'Hurricane" hitmaker will join John Mellencamp, Smokey Robinson and Jennifer Hudson, at the 'In Performance At The White House: A Celebration Of Music From The Civil Rights Movement show."
