All parents who can’t wait to head over to the bookstore to pick up a copy of a Dennis Rodman-penned children’s book for the young ones, please raise your hand and say, “I.”
Not all at once, please.
Okay, so maybe “The Worm” isn’t exactly the best candidate to impart wisdom on our nation’s impressionable youth (ahem, ahem). But that hasn’t stopped the 2011 NBA Hall of Fame inductee from trying his hand at doing just that.
The eccentric Rodman, who became just as famous for doing stuff like this off the court as he did for snagging rebounds during his 14-year career, has announced via his agent that he has co-written (with screenwriter Dustin Warburton) a book for youngsters entitled Dennis the Wild Bull. Per a release on the book’s official blog, Rodman embarked on the process “with the sole purpose of conveying good lessons to children based on…[his] own experiences.”
The book is slated to debut in September 2012, at what we can certainly deem an interesting time in the ex-NBA star’s own family life. In May he was sentenced to 104 hours of community service for failing to pay child support, and earlier this month, he reunited with his father (himself a daddy to 29 kids of his own!) after 42 years of separation.
No shelf price has been set, but any young adoring soul hoping to perhaps one day party as hard as Dennis did (does?) can receive a pre-ordered, personalized signed copy of the book for $30.
