The fan-favorite song, off Fleetwood Mac’s acclaimed 1977 album Rumours, was reinterpreted as a 24-page picture book, with illustrations by Nusha Ashjaee.

With the McVie’s passing on Wednesday, the book is now getting renewed attention online on Amazon’s children’s books chart, alongside her solo release Songbird, on the albums chart.

Don’t Stop follows the story of a rabbit, who works to awaken her hibernating friends out of winter and help them welcome in spring. Publishers Akashic Books calls McVie’s song an “enduring anthem to optimism and patience,” with the picture book reinterpreting the lyrics to tell a story about “keeping one’s chin up and rolling with life’s punches.”

A classic rock and karaoke staple, “Don’t Stop” was written by McVie, and sung as duet between the keyboardist and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. Released as the third single from Rumours, the song peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 charts (it was also famously used as the theme song for Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign).

Don’t Stop (the book), meantime, comes from LyricPop, a company that makes children’s books inspired by lyrics from some of the most famous artists of all time — from Guns N Roses to Bob Marley.

McVie passed away Wednesday following what her family described as “a short illness.” She was 79.
