Bruce Springsteen has written a children’s book. Outlaw Pete will be published by Simon & Schuster on November 4 reports USA Today. Based on a song from Springsteen's 2009 Working On A Dream album, "Outlaw Pete" is "essentially the story of a man trying to outlive and outrun his sins," Springsteen says. Or, in this case, a bank-robbing baby. The Boss has now joined the ranks of Madonna, Jimmy Buffett and Carly Simon who have authored children's books. Illustrator Frank Caruso came up with the idea of turning "Outlaw Pete" into a book and contributed the artwork that accompanies Springsteen’s lyrics.
