Synopsis

Forever Young by Bob Dylan

May you build a ladder to the stars And climb on every rung May you stay forever young Since he first released his self-titled debut in 1962, Bob Dylan has been one of the most celebrated artists of our time. And perhaps nowhere is he more affecting than in his 1974 hit, Forever Young. It's an antem to youth, to doing the right thing, to cherishing the spirit of being young. Re-imagined by award-winning illustrator, Paul Rogers, the lyrics tell the story of a young boy who travels through his life, living in the footsteps of the man who gave the world the greatest gift he had: music.

About the Author

Born Robert Allen Zimmerman in 1941, Bob Dylan is without question one of the most influential figures in the history of popular music. He not only revolutionised popular music by incorporating poetry in his folk and rock compositions, he also helped create a more inclusive and progressive consciousness in American culture. Paul Rogers is the illustrator of Wynton Marsalis's book Jazz ABZ. In addition to illustrating children's books, he has created images for the New York Times, Pixar Animation Studios, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and the NFL's Super Bowl. He lives with his wife, Jill, and his two children, Alex and Nate, in Pasadena, California.
