Van Dusen’s series includes If I Built a Car, which won the 2006 E. B. White Read Aloud Award presented by the Association of Booksellers for Children, and If I Built a House, which won the 2013 NEIBA Children’s Book Award presented by The New England Independent Booksellers Association. The next in the series is titled If I Built a School, which will publish Fall 2019 from DIAL/Penguin.

“Chris’ book series is the ultimate testament to imagination and wonder that can only be seen from a child’s point of view.  His style is iconic and mesmerizing — it’s a world we never want to leave, and I’m delighted to bring these books to life,” said Silverman.

“The If I Built books are all about using your creativity and thinking big. I’m thrilled that Stampede shares this vision and I can’t wait to see how they bring Jack’s vivid imagination to life on the big screen,” added Dusen.
