Simon & Schuster Canada children’s book editor Patricia Ocampo has commissioned a picture book adaptation of The Log Driver’s Waltz for world rights. A hallmark of Canadian childhood, the song “The Log Driver’s Waltz” was written by the late Wade Hemsworth and featured in the National Film Board’s animated film of the same name. Toronto-based illustrator Jennifer Phelan will reimagine the iconic log driver and his would-be bride. The deal for the illustrator was arranged by Daniel Lazar at Writers House.
