The Boss is Now a Children’s Book Author [Video]
Bruce Springsteen is working on a book for children titled “Outlaw Pete”.
“Outlaw Pete” is based on Springsteen’s song of the same name which appeared on his 2009 album Working on a Dream.
Both the song and book focus on “Outlaw Pete”- a bank-robbing baby who, as the song goes, had already done three months in jail by the age of six months!
Publishers Simon & Schuster are spinning the book as “a picture book for adults” that can also be read to children- I can get behind that, I like pictures!
The book will feature the illustrations of cartoonist Frank Caruso paired with the song lyrics written by Springsteen and is due to hit shelves November 4, 2014.
