Elvis is King!, the newest picture-book illustrated by Red Nose Studio, was released on what would have been Elvis’ 84th birthday – January 8th, 2019. An extraordinary visual telling of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s rise to a technicolor life, the Schwartz & Wade Books title written by Jonah King has already received critical acclaim. Named one of “THE MOST EXCITING PICTURE BOOKS OF 2019” by Brightly, it was featured as the cover image for the December 2018 issue of The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books. Glowing reviews from BookList and Publishers Weekly Review, and starred reviews from Kirkus and Bulletin have been a thrill.

“A reprise collaboration between Winter and Red Nose Studio is indeed something to celebrate, and both author and illustration team are at peak performance in this sly, rollicking picture book bio of Elvis Presley and his rise from mic-shy blond tyke to teen dreamboat with product-infused raven hair who turned his stage-fright trembling into iconic sex appeal” - Bulletin

Elvis is King! features a special hidden cover and the book jacket highlights the process and low-tech materials used to create the book’s artwork.
