Taking its name from one of the White Stripes’ most popular songs, a new children’s book follows little Suzy Lee as she finds a friend.

“We’re Going to Be Friends” is written by Grammy-winning musician Jack White and illustrated by Elinor Blake, a singer-songwriter (under the name April March) and experienced Disney-trained animator who has worked on “Pee Wee’s Playhouse”, “Ren and Stimpy”, and more.

In the hardcover book for children and adults alike, Suzy Lee “goes to school with her books and pens, looks for bugs, shows and tells, and finds a friend,” according to a description from the book’s publisher, Jack White’s Third Man Books.

The book takes its inspiration from the lyrics of the song of the same name; and the original White Stripes song plus new versions by April March and the Woodstation Elementary School Singers will be available via download with the book. JB
