Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education and media company, announced today that three-time Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep will narrate the audiobook edition of “Big Tree”. The illustrated novel by #1 New York Times bestselling and Caldecott Medal-winning author-artist Brian Selznick, will be released simultaneously in hardcover, audiobook, and ebook on April 4, 2023. A love letter to the natural world with over 300 pages of Selznick’s iconic graphite illustrations, Big Tree is an epic adventure and a breathtaking visual journey through time, nature and love that will thrill the whole family. The story, which began as an original idea from film legend Steven Spielberg, with guidance by Illumination founder Chris Meledandri, is Selznick’s most ambitious work to date. Featuring extensive sound design with natural sound effects, the audiobook edition will feature original music, giving listeners an immersive reading experience. Meryl Streep said, “With Big Tree, Brian Selznick has created a profound and lovely book. His quiet message – that even the smallest among us can do something to save the world, and that we’re all connected – is just what’s needed for the moment in which we find ourselves.” For more about Big Tree and to listen to an audiobook excerpt, visit www.scholastic.com/bigtree.
