The song that turned into a huge hit and at one point in time gave Slash disdain over, is now becoming a children’s book. That’s right – Guns N’ Roses is releasing a children’s picture book called Sweet Child O’ Mine, obviously, because a rose by any other name would probably not be as sweet.

People ran the story that explains the, “upcoming picture book the band created in collaboration with James Patterson that takes the lyrics of Guns N' Roses' song of the same name and spins it into a story perfect for the littlest fans.”

"As a longtime fan of Guns N' Roses, I'm thrilled to partner with the band in bringing their famed hit song to life on the page," Patterson, 73, says in a release.

"Sweet Child O'Mine is a story that I know kids will love reading and that parents will love singing along to," he adds of the book, which the release says "celebrates love and music, and how they bring us together in the sweetest ways."

The book is illustrated by Jennifer Zivion and “was inspired by the adventures of Maya and Natalia Rose, two young girls who have grown up touring with the band," the release reveals.”

The book is slated to launch in September, just in time for a nighttime bedtime story before school starts. Yowza!
