Space Oddity: The Children's Book, As Imagined By Andrew Kolb


This is ground control to Andrew Kolb, you really have made the grade.


This homebrewed, just-for-fun, not-for-sale, trying-to-get-blessed-by-the-Bowie-gods reimagining of "Space Oddity" as a kids book is flat-out awesome. Though it is also very, very sad...

It would certainly be a sleight to the memory of Major Tom's brave accomplishment if some lawyer started pelting the free pdf homage with takedown orders, especially when what's needed are publishing contracts.

Buy the CD or download David Bowie's Space Oddity from Amazon. The 2009 remastered reissue does seem pretty comprehensive [amazon]
