Future Best-Selling Author? Quvenzhané Wallis Signs a 4-Book Deal


“Boss chick” just seems appropriate here.

Academy Award nominee Quvenzhané Wallis has signed a four-book deal with Simon & Schuster for Young Readers.

Under the deal, the young actress will pen three chapter books and a picture book loosely based on her experiences.

Per The Hollywood Reporter:

Wallis’ yet-to-be-titled picture book follows a spunky young heroine who is very much looking forward to a night out with her mom at an awards show. The duo has a grand time getting dressed up, riding in a limo and walking the red carpet.

A precocious and talented third grader is the protagonist of Wallis’ chapter book series. The books follow Shai Williams, a star in the making, who has a flair for the dramatic … both onstage and off.

Too cute!

Quvenzhané released the following statement about her latest endeavor into literature:

“Reading is very important. It allows people to form a visual experience in their minds of what is going on in the story. I hope all readers enjoy using their imaginations along with me and take a journey into my books.”

You go, girl!

Be on the lookout for Quvenzhané’s first book in January 2017.
