THIRD MAN BOOKS ANNOUNCES WE'RE GOING TO BE FRIENDS CHILDREN'S BOOK BASED ON THE BELOVED JACK WHITE-PENNED WHITE STRIPES SONG OF THE SAME NAME

Posted by on 19 May 2017

 

BOOK TO BE RELEASED ON NOVEMBER 7, 2017
AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW

 

Third Man Books is proud to announce We're Going To Be Friends, a children's picture book based on The White Stripes' acclaimed song of the same name from their platinum-certified album White Blood Cells. Written by Jack White, We're Going To Be Friends is the first book from the twelve-time GRAMMY-winning musician, actor and producer. The book is illustrated by Elinor Blake, who is known for her work as an animator on The Ren and Stimpy Show and Pee Wee's Playhouse, as well as a musician under the name April March. Recordings of the original White Stripes song, along with new versions by April March and The Woodstation Elementary School Singers, will be included with the book as digital downloads. We're Going To Be Friends will be released on November 7, 2017, just a few months after The White Stripes' 20th anniversary as a band (July 14, 2017).

"We're Going to be Friends" is one of The White Stripes' most enduring and loved songs, and the perennial favorite feels right at home on the page as a children's book. This November, children, adults, and you, too, can join Suzy Lee as she goes to school with her books and pens, looks for bugs, shows and tells, and finds a friend.
