NEW YORK - "The Hunger Games" novelist Suzanne Collins has a new book coming out.
Scholastic Inc. says the multimillion-selling author has a picture book scheduled for next fall. The book will be called "Year of the Jungle," based on the time in Vietnam served by Collins' father.
"Year of the Jungle" is her first book since 2010's "Mockingjay," the last of her "Hunger Games" trilogy.
Scholastic also announced Thursday that Collins' five-volume "The Underland Chronicles" will be reissued with new covers and that "Catching Fire," the second of her "Hunger Games" books, will be released in paperback.
