From the Mediabistro post:
Actor Russell Brand has written his first children’s book. The book is called The Pied Piper of Hamlet, and is the first of a series of fairy stories and folk tales called Russell Brand’s Trickster Tales. Chris Riddell, a contributor to The Observer and National Book Award nominee, created the drawings.
Russell announced the book in a YouTube video. He says that he hopes the stories will “unlock aspects of our consciousness and to affect and impact the way that we see the world.”
