Brit Lit from KR

While glancing through the news, I thought I saw a picture of a raisin wearing an earring, so I stopped to read the article.  Only it wasn't a raisin, it was a celebrity. No intro, no chit-chat;  let's get right on it: Keith Richards is writing a children's book.   

In my mind, Keith Richards and Mick Jagger were the bad boys with swagger of rock and roll in the 60s...and then the 70s...and then the 80s...you get the picture - and these guys are still on tour.   Everyone, including the dearly departed ex-band mate, Brian Jones (God rest his soul), says "what in the world?"  

Keith Richards is the man who made me think the name of his band was The Rolling Stoned for many years. Smoking, drinking, drugs, women, hard living...still rocking at 70.  As in the musical genre, not the chair of grandpa fame.

Here are some future children's story titles that might clue you in to a Keith Richards' children's book:

  1. Goldilocks and the Three Beers
  2. Goodnight, Keith Moon
  3. James and the Giant Paycheck
  4. Where the Wild Chicks Are
  5. Oh, the Places You'll Play!
  6. The Lorax Prescription
  7. A Wrinkle Onstage
  8. Some Cat in a Hat
  9. Alice's Adventures on a Tour Bus
  10. Green Eggs and Ham - Yes, Ma'am!

On a related note, the minimum age for a library card has been raised to 21.

[Little, Brown Books for Young Readers announced that it would publish Mr. Richards’s “Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar.”]
