Russell Brand to rewrite classic fairy tales in new children’s book series
The popular actor/comedian Russell Brand has announced that his next big project will be in the children’s section. A new deal with Atria Books will allow Brand to publish his new book “Russell Brand’s Trickster Tales,” which will consist of classic fairy tales with a Russell Brand twist.
There are already three books planned with the new deal including “The Pied Piper of Hamelin,” which is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2014, and two other titles that are yet to be named in 2015 and 2016.
Brand will be teaming up with the award-winning illustrator Chris Riddell for the new series. Brand is already an accomplished author, having two best-selling books under his belt “My Booky Wook” and “Articles of Faith.”
