A Bowie song refashioned as children's fare? Really? Really!
Turns out, it's not that much of a stretch. Bowie is universal.
The lyrics of David Bowie's 1969 single "Space Oddity" have been used as the basis for a children's book. In the 40-page book, author and artist Andrew Kolb tells the story of "Major Tom," who goes into space and becomes a media hero on Earth. However, when he ventures out and attempts to further explore, things go terribly, terribly wrong. Sounds like a story I want to read, even though I am over the age of 25.
