Andrew Kolb was so taken with David Bowie's famed space travel ditty "Space Oddity" that he wrote it up as a charmingly tragic kid's book. You can read the whole thing here. Hopefully after you're done scarring your kids with this book, Kolb will illustrate a version of "Diamond Dogs" that will assuredly freak out the young'uns.

This is so awesome it almost makes me wish I had kids of my own to read it to.

But I'll do the next best thing, if it ever goes on sale, I'll read it to someone else's kids.

Just doing my part to subvert the dominant paradigm!
