The Rolling Stones star is to release children's book

Rolling Stones star Keith Richards is writing a children's book with his daughter Theodora Richards which is due to be released this autumn.

The 70-year-old musician's first foray in kids' storytelling is inspired by Richard's late grandfather, Gus Dupree, and will be called Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar.

Speaking about the book, which will be published by Little Brown Books, Richards said: "I have just become a grandfather for the fifth time, so I know what I'm talking about.

"The bond, the special bond, between kids and grandparents is unique and should be treasured.

"This is a story of one of those magical moments. May I be as great a grandfather as Gus was to me."

Richards' daughter will illustrate the children's book while Barnaby Harris and Bill Shapiro will assist with the writing.
