Entertainment Weekly reports that Bruce Springsteen is writing a kids' book called Outlaw Pete, based on his 2009 song of the same name. The book, about a bank-robbing baby, will consist of Bruce's lyrics paired with illustrator Frank Caruso's drawings. And Bruce isn't the only boomer icon branching out into kiddie lit as of late — Keith Richards announced he is penning a book called Gus & Me back in March. Dad rock: Now also for kids!
