Sidewalk Prophets Writes New Children’s Book

Dave Frey and Ben McDonald, co-founders of Curb | Word Entertainment’s Sidewalk Prophets, are delighted to share The Luckiest Star, a new picture book they co-wrote with Elizabeth Cardella Hayes. The book tells a new Christmas tale that families will be eager to hear for years to come. It is illustrated by David Leonard, who also created the band’s Merry Christmas To You (Great Big Family Edition) album cover, and features a forward by Paul William Young, New York Times bestselling author of The Shack.

“The Luckiest Star was such a dream to create,” shares Frey. “Since we wrote our song ‘Hey Moon,’ I had always hoped to write an accompanying book that I could someday read to my child. Since I became a dad a couple years ago, it was finally time. I hope that it will bless your family this Christmas and all year long, as we all discover what it means to be known, loved, and made for an important purpose.”

A true labor of love that took four years to write, edit, and produce, The Luckiest Star tells the tale of Hemmy, the tiniest, funniest tiny star in the galaxy. Hemmy embarks on a journey to discover where in the galaxy he truly belongs with the help of his best buddy, the moon, who lights his way. Hemmy finds he was created to shine after having a chance encounter with the Maker during the Christmas season. He quickly discovers his light was meant to reveal the greatest present the world has ever received.

McDonald also adds, “This has been such a special project to collaborate on. Dave and I have been writing songs together for years, but it was really special to work creatively together in a different format. We’re so blessed to work with talented creatives like our co-author Elizabeth Cardella Hayes and our illustrator David Leonard. Every single person on the team pushed this story to new heights, and we can’t wait to share this special labor of love with the world.”

Sidewalk Prophets announced last week that their fourth annual “Great Big Family Christmas Tour” will bring their Great Big Family together for some carol-singing, camaraderie, and holiday cheer. Fans can anticipate interesting surprises and freebies throughout the show as well as the opportunity to create precious memories with their families. Like in previous years, an offering will be taken at the end of each performance in support of a deserving person or group in the community. The “Great Big Family Christmas Tour” has raised over $150K to date for regional people and organizations around the nation, and its long-term objective is to reach over $1M.
