Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl, and Russell Brand?
The English funny-man has just announced some exciting news, and it was not what we were expecting!
Known for his relationships, biting wit, and for never holding back what he's thinking, most people wouldn't expect the words Russell Brand and children's author to be in the same sentence.
But that's exactly what has happened with news that Russell is in the middle of writing a book for kids! In fact - it's going to be a children's book series!
The series will be called Russell Brand's Trickster Tales, and we're not gonna lie - it actually looks like it might be awesome!
The first book in the series is titled The Pied Piper of Hamelin, and it features illustrations from artist Chris Riddell.
You can totally see for yourself, too, since Russell's announcement was made in video form!!
