Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is dabbling in the world of kid lit. The rock legend and his daughter Theodora Richards are teaming up to write a children's book slated for publication later this year.
Gus & Me: The Story of My Grandad and My First Guitar will tell the story of young Keith's introduction to music by his grandfather, jazz big band artist Theodore Augustus Dupree. Theodora -- who is named after her great-grandfather -- is providing the illustrations.
Gus & Me is due out September 9th through Little, Brown Books for Young Readers in hardcover and e-book editions. The hardcover version will be packaged with a CD that includes bonus content.
