Guns N’ Roses has announced that a picture book based on their 1987 hit Sweet Child o’ Mine is to be published on September 1st, by Jimmy Patterson Publishing. This is the picture book I didn’t realize I’ve been waiting for, for the last 33 years! There’s no synopsis yet, but the publicity statement reads:

“Iconic band Guns N’ Roses gives new meaning to the beloved lyrics in this vivid, heartfelt picture book. Follow a child’s wondrous discovery that music is everywhere around us—from the gentle wind blowing from the bluest skies, to the fearful crash of the thunder and the rain. With Jennifer Zivoin’s evocative, sweeping paintings, Sweet Child o’ Mine celebrates love and music and how they bring us together in the sweetest ways.“

Here is the teaser trailer.

And in case this has you feeling nostalgic, here’s the original video:

She’s got a smile that it seems to me

Reminds me of childhood memories

Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky

Now and then when I see her face

She takes me away to that special place

And if I stare too long, I’d probably break down and cry

🌻

Whoa, oh, oh

Sweet child o’ mine

Whoa, oh, oh, oh

Sweet love of mine 

🌻

She’s got eyes of the bluest skies

As if they thought of rain

I’d hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain

Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place

Where as a child I’d hide

And pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by

🌻

Whoa, oh, oh

Sweet child o’ mine

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, oh

Sweet love of mine

🌻

Whoa, yeah

Whoa, oh, oh, oh

Sweet child o’ mine

Whoa, oh, whoa, oh

Sweet love of mine

Whoa, oh, oh, oh

Sweet child o’ mine

Ooh, yeah

Ooh sweet love of mine

Sweet child, sweet child o’ mine
