Dennis Rodman has written a children’s book. I wish I were kidding.

Maybe he got the idea from Madonna.

Dennis Rodman has “authored” a couple of books before. And by authored I mean he spoke to a writer and posed for the cover art. His most recent was titled “I Should Be Dead by now.” But his follow up is one he may have written himself — “Dennis The Wild Bull.” A children’s book. Maybe we can give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

From the blog about the book (hat tip to SLAM):

After going through his latest divorce and having to spend time away from his children as a result, Dennis has now done something many people never thought would ever happen. He’s written a children’s book which he’s dedicating to his children, with the intent to relay a positive message to our countries youth and to his own children…

Rodman has teamed up with Author/screenwriter Dustin Warburton and illustrator Dan Monroe with the sole purpose of conveying good lessons to children based on Dennis’s own experiences as a world class athlete while overcoming obstacles as a child.

Okay, so he didn’t actually write this one, either. That may actually be good news for the quality of the book, however.

The book is due out in September. We haven’t done a book review on this blog in a while and… no. My book recommendations? “Sense of an Ending” is my favorite thing I read in a while and that “1q84” is too repetitive because it was originally written as a trilogy. That’s it.
