The celebrity book train continues to roll on, with most of today’s book news centering around famous names who have recently signed some deals that sound both interesting and, well, interesting.
Scholastic has announced that it will be publishing a holiday children’s picture book from Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. The subject matter? The couple’s adorable twins, Moroccan and Monroe. According to Scholastic’s press release, Roc and Roe’s Twelve Days of Christmas will be geared towards children ages 3 and up and will follow the kids as “they put their own unique spin on the Christmas Carol “The 12 Days of Christmas.”
Meanwhile, Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman, fresh off the success of his best-selling book Paddle Your Own Canoe, will be penning another narrative. Dutton announced the acquisition and said, in its press release, that the untitled book would “highlight approximately twenty-five figures from U.S. history that Offerman considers his personal pantheon of ‘Great Americans’ — which range from George Washington to Willie Nelson – told from his unique, always humorous perspective.” Ron Swanson dishing on his favorite historical and famous figures?
