Bruce Springsteen turns Outlaw Pete into children’s book

Bruce Springsteen has joined the ranks of the celebrity children’s authors by turning his 2009 song Outlaw Pete into a new story book. The Boss has teamed up with writer and cartoonist Frank Caruso to transform the track into a kids book that will be released in November (14).
Caruso says, “When Bruce wrote Outlaw Pete he didn’t just write a great song, he created a great character. The first time I heard the song this book played out in my head.
“Like Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, Dorothy Gale and, for me, even Popeye, Outlaw Pete cuts deep into the folklore of our country and weaves its way into the fabric of great American literary characters.”
The rocker adds, “Outlaw Pete is essentially the story of a man trying to outlive and outrun his sins.”
