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.
