According to Billboard.com, Madonna and merchandising company Signatures Network Inc. announced a deal to develop dolls, apparel, accessories, cosmetics, stationery, room decor and back-to-school products aimed at the “pre-tween” readers, aged 7 to 12, who made Madonna’s book a hit. The ‘Roses’ products begin rolling out in early 2004. “I’m excited about the opportunity to develop a range of beautiful products that will complement the book and continue to spread its positive messages to children,” Madonna said.
