I just saw an article on Facebook discussing how Joanna Gaines has written a children’s book…and before I could check myself I had rolled my eyes so hard I could see the back of my own skull. That totally isn’t fair. I’ve never read her book, and it could be fabulous. But whenever I see that a celebrity has written a children’s book, I suspect that if that same book manuscript were submitted to a publishing house without the famous name attached, the editors would be whipping out a rejection email tout de suite.
Michael Ian Black
Jamie Lee Curtis
I’ll be honest with you…I snorted a bit when I saw that Keith Richards is a children’s book author. 🙂 Honestly, I’m sure that at least a few celebrity-written picture books are excellent. I personally can recommend Today I Feel Silly by Jamie Lee Curtis and The Purple Kangaroo by Michael Ian Black. Both of these are completely delightful for totally different reasons. So help me out–can you recommend any other celebrity-written children’s books?
