Bowie Classic Morphs Into Book

Space Oddity, the song David Bowie composed after the first manned lunar landing, is being turned into a children's book.  Andrew Kolb is drawing on the lyrics to the 1969 Bowie classic to create the garphic images and the story line.  The graphic artist told Wired, '...the approach I took was one that translated best to an image-based story', and noted, '...how could you not have fun designing spacesuits and jet packs?'  We wonder whether Major Tom's predicament has a more kid-friendly outcome than the one it seemed headed for in the tune.
