"Hunger Games" Author to Return With Children's Picture Book

Suzanne Collins' Year of the Jungle

Suzanne Collins’ upcoming Year of the Jungle

Suzanne Collins, author of the wildly popular Hunger Games trilogy will return to market September 2013 with Year of the Jungle, POSTSCRIPT’D reports. The story about a little girl whose father ships off to war, specifically the titular jungle of Vietnam, is aimed at an audience far younger than Collins’ Hunger Games devotees, but with so many families fragmented by the Iraq and Afghanistan wars–and print sales for children’s fiction among the only categories growing in the print category, it’s likely to hit the bestseller list as well. The Amazon description reads: “When young Suzy’s father leaves for Vietnam, she struggles to deal with his absence. What is the jungle like? Will her father be safe? When will he return? The months slip by, marked by the passing of the familiar holidays and the postcards that her father sends. With each one, he feels more and more distant, and when he returns, Suzy must learn that even though war has changed him, he still loves her just the same.”
