Guns N' Roses have announced the forthcoming publication of Sweet Child O' Mine, a children's picture book based on a song in which approximately 50 percent of the lyrics are "whoa, yeah, whoa, oh, oh, oh" and "where do we go now."

The book is being written in collaboration with novelist James Patterson, reports Pitchfork, and will apparently pull its narrative from the lyrics of the hit 1988 song. The eponymous "sweet children o' mine" (didn't have the same ring, I guess?) will be depicted in the illustrations as Maya and Natalia Rose, the niece and daughter of the band's manager, Fernando Lebeis.
