David Bowie's 'Space Oddity' Becomes Children's Book
The storyline of David Bowie's 1969 single Space Oddity has been used for a new children's book. The lyrics have become the basis of a colorful book written by author/artist Andrew Kolb, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. In less than 40 pages, the kids' book recounts the story of astronaut Major Tom, who goes into space and becomes a media hero back on earth. Yet, when Tom ventures out to explore even further, something goes horribly wrong. Fans can check out a free, full PDF file of the book at Kolb's website (although the site seems to be experiencing some technical difficulties much like Major Tom's spacecraft). Thanks for the report to Bryan Wawzenek, Gibson.com.
