Tiffany Haddish is doing it for the kids with her new book deal!
The actress-comedian recently signed a three-book deal with HarperCollins Kids and already has the first book ready to go.
Layla, the Blast Black Unicorn is the Night School star's debut children's book, co-written by Jerdine Nolen. The picture book is scheduled for release May 10, 2022 and tells the story of a unicorn who doesn't quite fit in and doesn't recognize her differences as something special.
Haddish says writing children's books is something personal for her.
"It's no secret that when I was growing up, I had a lot of difficulties learning to read. Like many kids, more than anything, I wanted to see myself in the books I read," Haddish said in a statement.
"Layla, the Last Black Unicorn is a story about self-acceptance, and a story that I hope inspires kids to be ready to step up and stand out. Layla is incredibly close to my hear, and I can't wait to share this book... with the world," she added.
Haddish is also working on two middle grade novels, co-written by Paula Chase, set to be released in the winters of 2023 and 2024.
"I hope they encourage more kids to read," Haddish said of her latest projects.
