DAVID BOWIE-INSPIRED CHILDREN’S BOOK
For my own jollies
Have you ever listened to a song and your mind’s eye is immediately filled with visuals?
David Bowie’s classic space epic is one such song for me. Every lyric paints such a vivid picture that I figured “Oh hey, I guess I’ll make that into a children’s book!” Yes, I talk like this.
Although I haven’t heard from Mr. Bowie (yet), why wait to share the full book?
Links are not working so I’ve checked the Andrew Kolb’s web.. seems that recording company banned the publication. The name and all the text is removed..
