Back in November, we heard that The Simpsons writer-producer Tim Long was creating an HBO series for SNL alum Molly Shannon.
Haven't heard news on that project in while, but it looks like Miz Shannon is keeping plenty busy with a children's book she's writing, Tilly the Trickster, which will be released in September.
The book "tells the tale of a feisty, mischievous youngster named Tilly."
Shannon's publisher Abrams Books for Young Readers says that her inspirations for the book were "her childhood, Hollywood roles, and interactions with her children."
Here's what Molly had to say about the book:
"Tilly is an imperfectly perfect role model for young readers. Some kids are just born to make trouble–and also bound to find out how it feels when trouble finds them!"
Sounds like a funny story with heart and some good lessons for children! We approve!
Congrats, Molly! We'll look forward to hearing more when the book is released in September.
