Loosely based

From PW: “HarperCollins said today that it has acquired world rights to a children’s book—as yet untitled—written by First Lady Laura Bush and her daughter Jenna. Set in a school, the book depicts a mischievous boy who likes to do everything but read. With the help of his teacher, he finds out that books and their characters can be a lot of fun. The story is loosely based on Mrs. Bush’s and Jenna’s experiences as teachers.”

Yeah, and you can bet that their relationship to the writing will be pretty loose, too! Let’s hope the ghost writer gets a nice cut.
