The Diverse Singing Career of Neil Sedaka

The legendary singer now produces children’s books

Neil Sedaka has been successful in the music business for nearly six decades. An accomplishment he attributes to hard work, a willingness to reinvent his career, and a flexibility to change his style. He is now producing children’s books and music with his son, Marc. Dinosaur Pet is his wonderfully illustrated children’s book that features whimsical translations of classic songs like "Calendar Girl" and "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do." Together Sedaka and his grandchildren sing these new translations as "Dinosaur Pet" and "Waking Up Is Hard to Do."
