When he’s not performing in a pair of understated red skivvies, Les Savy Fav frontman Tim Harrington enjoys a plethora of other artistic endeavors, like creating a line of sarcastic greeting cards and running a textiles company with his wife. Now, the sweat-soaked Sasquatch has added another highlight to his CV: he’s writing a children’s book.

To be released soon by Balzer & Bray, the children’s imprint of HarperCollins, the untitled picture book is a “humorous, fresh take on the nursery rhyme ‘This Little Piggy,’ featuring drumming, dancing, and superhero toes,” according to The New York Observer. You can sample Harrington’s various illustrations at the website of his one-man think tank, Harrington & Selves.
