Ringo Starr Children's Book To Include Unheard Version Of 'Octopus's Garden'

A new children's book featuring Ringo Starr will include a previously unheard version of the former Beatles drummer singing "Octopus's Garden."

Also titled Octopus's Garden, the book will be released by Simon & Schuster after Starr gave the publishing house permission to turn the famous Beatles' track into a picture book.

According to a post on Ringo's official Facebook account, the book will come with a previously unreleased recording of the song, too:

"Here's an exclusive look at the artwork from the forthcoming picture book of Octopus's Garden - publishing this October, the song will be brought to life by illustrator Ben Cort and published with a CD of Ringo reading the story and an original, previously unheard recording of the song by Ringo."

"It gives me great pleasure to collaborate with Ben Cort and Simon & Schuster for the further adventures of Octopus's Garden. Peace and love," Starr added.
