Some clever spark has designed a children’s book, complete with cutsey illustrations, based on Space Oddity, the clasic David Bowie song. The song lyrics become the actual story… You know, the song about Major Tom, who gets launched into space only to have something horrible happen.
I won’t spoil the ending but I think the idea is to turn kids on to Bowie, rather than turn them off becoming astronauts… But it might do that too.
The artist is Andrew Kolb and you can check out the book here. (PDF) It’s a big file so give it a chance to load.
Hysterical blasphemy sidenote: “Major Tom” gets capitalised throughout the book but “god” does not. This book is of Satan.
