Pharrell Williams is a jack of all trades; a super producer, singer-songwriter, designer, giant hat enthusiast, and now, he can add author of children¡¯s books to his already-long resume, signing a four book deal with Penguin Publishing, with his first book to be inspired by his hit song ¡®Happy¡¯.
¡°I¡¯m humbled by the global success of Happy, but especially in awe of the song¡¯s young fans¡ My collaboration with Penguin allows me to continue a dialogue with these children in a fresh, new way. We¡¯re both committed to feeding the curiosity of young minds with imagination,¡± he said in a statement.
The book, titled Happy will feature photos of kids from around the world ¡°celebrating what it means to be happy¡±, and will be published on September 22nd.
Pharrell isn¡¯t a complete stranger to the world of publishing, with his part photo journal, part biography, part CV, Places and Spaces I¡¯ve Been, was released in 2012.
