I love David Bowie, I love Space Oddity and I love Andrew Kolb for deciding to illustrate it in the most brilliant way.
If you're familiar with Space Oddity (and if you're not, drop everything and go listen to it) you realise it's not really suited for a children's book. I mean, spoilers I guess, but Major Tom does not have a very happy ending, does he?
But the book is amazing for all of us ill-functioning adults and for all Bowie fans, so basically for everyone ever, really.
And I wasn't kidding when I said I love Kolb's illustrations!
So, if you haven't yet, go read it!!
