Random House Kids' official website says the book tells the story of an animated Lil Nas X and Panini the pony (which is named after his popular sandwich-titled song) "on a joyous journey through the alphabet from sunup to sundown." C Is for Country is geared towards little ones who are ages 3 to 7.

Illustrated by Theodore Taylor III, the publishing company says the book includes "plenty of hidden surprises for Nas' biggest fans."
