Joe Abercrombie to write Children's picture books.

Latest news is that King of Grimdark, Joe Abercrombie is to write a series of children's picture books. Talking on the phone to Drew Peacock, reviewer for the TLS, Joe had this to say.
"I want people to know there is more to me than just grimdark. I am thinking a series with woodland creatures. Maybe a field mouse with a loving family.

I am losing my touch. Remember the year I convinced @JMack that Peter Jackson was making a Middle Earth film about Fatty Bolger?
