"Possibly the greatest-ever song about childhood BFFs.” — Entertainment Weekly
“We’re Going to be Friends” is one of our fave The White Stripes songs. With the help of illustrator Elinor Blake (aka April March), Jack White tells the story of Suzy Lee as she goes to school with her books and pens, looks for bugs, shows and tells, and finds a friend. It's a book children, adults, and you, too, can definitely enjoy!
Jack White is a twelve-time Grammy-winning musician, producer, and actor. He is best known for his work in the bands The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, and as a solo artist. In 2009 he also founded his own record label, Third Man Records.
Elinor Blake, a.k.a. singer/songwriter April March, is a Disney trained animator first hired at age eighteen by Paul Reubens for Pee-wee’s Playhouse, in a studio so large there was rollerskating around the drawing boards after hours. She then went on to work with some of the best known artists and directors in movies and television, among them Ralph Bakshi, Quentin Tarantino, Nick Park, and John Kricfalusi. She’s animated everything from Coke to Crest Toothpaste and everyone from Ren & Stimpy to Bugs Bunny, not to mention Frank Zappa (whom she just mentioned). This is her first children’s book.
