Russell Brand has revealed he is writing a series of children's books.
The series, called Russell Brand's Trickster Tales, will feature adaptations of popular fairy tales and folk stories.
The comedian posted a video on YouTube announcing the first title, a retelling of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
The books will be illustrated by Chris Riddell, who has worked with authors including Philip Ridley, Brian Patten and Paul Stewart.
Katy Perry’s ex-hubby explained he was writing the books to change the way children see the world.
"It's the first of a series called Russell Brand's Trickster Tales, where I do interpretations of fairy stories and folk tales, believing them to be the code to unlock aspects of our consciousness, and to affect and impact the way that we see the world.
"Once we start changing the way children see the world… we can do all sorts of stuff."
