Prolific author James Patterson will help turn the classic Guns N’ Roses song “Sweet Child O’ Mine” into a kids’ book.
Soon, a new book will join such children’s classics as “The Cat in the Hat” and “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” — “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” a kids’ book based on the Guns N’ Roses song.
The book, written by the members of GN’R in collaboration with prolific author James Patterson, will turn the lyrics of the hit tune into an engaging children’s story, Patterson says. “I’m thrilled to partner with the band in bringing their famed hit song to life on the page,” he says. “‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ is a story that I know kids will love reading and that parents will love singing along to.

According to Amazon’s description of the book, readers will “follow a child’s wondrous discovery that music is everywhere around us — from the gentle wind blowing through the bluest skies, to the fearful crash of the thunder and the rain.” It’s due September 1st.
