Madonna’s Children’s Book Tops the List
The singer’s children’s story, “The English Roses,” was published simultaneously around the world Sept. 15 and will top The New York Times’ children’s list for the Oct. 5 edition.
“It demonstrates once again that Madonna has an extraordinary gift for communicating with children of all ages,” Nicholas Callaway, CEO of Callaway Arts & Entertainment, the book’s U.S. publisher, said in a statement Thursday.
