(Gibson) The storyline of David Bowie's 1969 single "Space Oddity" has been used for a new children's book. The lyrics have become the basis of a colorful book written by author/artist Andrew Kolb, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

In less than 40 pages, the kids' book recounts the story of astronaut Major Tom, who goes into space and becomes a media hero back on earth. Yet, when Tom ventures out to explore even further, something goes horribly wrong.

Fans can check out a free, full PDF file of the book at Kolb's website (although the site seems to be experiencing some technical difficulties much like Major Tom's spacecraft). more on this story
