They say don't judge a book by it's cover… BUT that (above) cover looks AWESOME!
Even without that purdy cover, we are totes excited about Chris Colfer's new children's book.
No, it's not about a Glee club. Chris' first book, The Land of Stories, is described as a "modern fairy tail". It has such a good story the publisher just announced has moved the book's release to THIS summer!

Congratulations on the successful book, Obama! Maybe now you'll actually amount to something……
Barack Obama's children's book "Of Thee I Sing" has already made the top 25 lists on both Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com, even though it won't even be released for a full two months!
Obama wrote the book before he became President, and publishers have said that the proceeds will be donated to a scholarship fund for the children of fallen and disabled soldiers.
What's next for Obama after his children's book? Well, aside from continuing to run the U.S., he has mentioned plans to write a nonfiction book after he leaves office. We'll expect large numbers from such a book, given the fact that his previous two works of nonfiction have sold millions of copies.
What's your secret to success, Barack? Is it mostly because you're the President of the United States of America?
We wish you the best with your children's book, bb! Glad to hear the proceeds will go to children in need.

Weird Al Yankovic has nine songs ready on his next album and has just three more to go — but apparently with the rise of YouTube it's getting harder for Al to get his shiz together!.
"Because of portals like that, I will never again be the only or the first person to parody any given pop song. By the time I'm in the studio recording my parody, 10,000 parodies of that song are on YouTube. It makes it harder to be fresh and unique. It's frustrating, but it does help me step up my game. If I can't be the first and only, I can be the best."
He might be parodying Lady GaGa, too but he said "I don't want to give anything away."
Weird Al has also written a children's book When I Grow Up that's due out in March! He says: "It needs to pass through committees and everything. But I enjoyed doing that, and I'll probably be doing more down the line."
Will U be buying Weird Al's next album?
