Read David Bowie's "Space Oddity" transformed into the saddest children's book ever

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Andrew Kolb was so taken with David Bowie's famed space travel ditty "Space Oddity" that he wrote it up as a charmingly tragic kid's book. You can read the whole thing here. Hopefully after you're done scarring your kids with this book, Kolb will illustrate a version of "Diamond Dogs" that will assuredly freak out the young'uns.

Hat tip to Joe!
