10 Children's Books By Celebrities

Bad as I Wanna Be, Good Night Moon!

Guess who is writing a children’s book? Dennis Rodman! And if you’re like me, you’re probably thinking, well, what took him so long? And oh, I thought he’d written a couple already! And perhaps, OMG, is a Charlie Sheen Bible Study Guide for children far behind?  But it’s true, my friends, Dennis Rodman is an author!

And while we’re celebrating this exciting literary development, I thought it would be fun to look through some of the other celebrity-penned books!

    That's right, The Fonz himself (well, maybe with a co-author) wrote Hank Zipzer about a 4th grader. Funny stories about a kid who struggles with school. Thanks to my friend, Peajaye for recommending it to me!

    The English Roses is the first in a series of Madonna's books about school girls who are envious of a new girl in their school.

My daughter adored these books with she was about 7 and when she discovered Madonna the singer as a teen couldn't believe that in addition to being an author, she also had a music career!
