Jack White is preparing to publish his first children's book, which based on one of his own songs. According to Exclaim, White will release We're Going To Be Friends through his own Third Man Books imprint. The story is inspired by the White Stripes song of the same name, and will follow little Suzy Lee "as she goes to school with her books and pens, looks for bugs, shows and tells, and finds a friend."
The book is written by White and illustrated by Elinor Blake- who has an impressive resume- as she previously worked as an animator for The Ren And Stimpy Show and Pee Wee's Playhouse.
The book will also include downloads of the original White Stripes version of the song, along with versions from Blake as her musical alter ago April March and the Woodstation Elementary School Singers.
We're Going To Be Friends arrives on November 7th and can be pre-ordered HERE at the Third Man website.
Here's the video for the song:
