Listen to The Rolling Stones on iHeartRadio

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.
