Springsteen Ballad To Become Children’s Book

NEW YORK (AP) _ The Boss is getting into the picture book business.

“Outlaw Pete,” which is based on a ballad from Bruce Springsteen’s “Working on a Dream” album, will be published by Simon & Schuster on Nov. 4. The publisher said Thursday that the book will feature Springsteen’s lyrics and illustrations by Frank Caruso. Springsteen’s song was inspired by the children’s book “Brave Cowboy Bill,” which came out in 1950. Springsteen has said that his mother used to tell him bedtime stories about Cowboy Bill.

Another rock `n’ roll superstar, Keith Richards, has a picture book out this fall. “Gus & Me,” scheduled for release Sept. 9, is a tribute to Richards’ grandfather, musician Gus Dupree.
