Bowie’s “Space Oddity” Now a Children’s Book

One of the greatest songs of all time, David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity‘ is, for some reason, being turned into a children’s book!

One page from Andrew Kolb's 'Space Oddity'.

The book is currently available as a free download on the website of the illustrator, Andrew Kolb. 

I love the song, and as an adult I think the illustrations are kinda cool. But the whole story might be a little traumatic as a kid.

Then again, so is “The Land Before Time“. (seriously, who DIDN’T cry when Littlefoot’s mom got killed by the T-Rex?)

The song, of course, is awesome. So give it a listen if you’ve never heard it. And if you have heard it…well, still give it a listen!

    Yea that would be a bit weird for kids but when you look at it most children’s stories are.

    I love Space Oddity also, but it’s such a weird idea for a kid’s book, especially because in the Bowie song Ashes to Ashes Bowie sings “Major Tom’s a junky.”
