Just in time for Christmas. Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy and his wife Carson Ellis have been working on a children's book, which should feel right at home with Fox In Socks and The Berenstain Bears.

The Unfortunate Demise of Whitley Rackham—illustrated by Ellis and written by Meloy—should be completed soon. No details have been released... only the above illustration. This will go perfectly with Gwar's new album Lust In Space I was planning on getting my nephew for Christmas.
