The Day Goes By artworkThe Day Goes By is a work-in-progress children's book written by Anna Cooper, focused on a day in the life of Syd Barrett. The story "combines the whimsy that was ever-present in Syd's songs, as well as the struggle that comes from having too many possibilities from which to choose; a situation that both children and adults can relate to".

After Syd passed away in July 2006, his sister Rosemary Breen set up the Syd Barrett Fund with profits from Syd's estate to raise money for the organization. It seems Rosemary loved the book and she is supportive of getting it published. She has spoken in interviews about her brother's own fascination with children's stories and fantasy, and believes this book would be "a wonderful way of honouring his memory". Word is spreading about this book, and initially, you can find out more info, and see some of the artwork, here...
