It is illustrated by Christian Robinson. The book grew out of a poem Meghan wrote for Harry for their first Father’s Day.

“Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolor illustrations that capture the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me, and [we] worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens,” Meghan said.

Guthrie was one of the most important figures in American folk music and penned hundreds of songs, including some that The Boss has performed over the years.

“Woody wrote some of the greatest songs about America’s struggle to live up its ideals in convincing fashion,” Springsteen said in a statement. The New Jersey rocker called Guthrie, who died in 1967, “one of my most important influences.”
