Ex-Beatle Ringo Starr will adapt the 1968 hit “Octopus’s Garden”—his second and last solo composition while a member of the Fab Four—into a children’s book. The story, which follows the adventures of five kids and a playful polyp, will be published by Simon and Schuster next October in the UK and next January in the US. It will be illustrated by Aliens Love Underpants’ Ben Cort, and the hardcover version will include a CD featuring an unreleased track by Starr. “It gives me great pleasure,” said the drummer in a message to his fans.
