Part of the critically acclaimed Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of David Bowie, the starman who dazzled audiences with his music.
As a child, young David lived with his family in a tiny house on an ordinary street, but he had a head full of songs and ideas. At school he was loved music and dance, and he was inspired by his brother's rock and jazz records to pick up the saxophone and start writing his own songs.
After earning his stripes in some of the coolest bands in London, David splashed onto the solo scene. David knew that to be a star, he had to combine great songs with great performace, and so from this point on he took on a range of shapeshifting personas, from Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke, but really, he was just being himself, expressing his art on the stage.
His songwriting talent and musical skill made him one of rock and roll's all-time greatest artists. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the musician's life.
