Twelve year old actress Quvenzhane Wallis has signed a four book deal with publishers Simon & Schuster.
The deal reportedly includes a chapter-book trilogy, as well as a picture book book said to be written by Quvenzhane herself.
The first book is set to launch in January of 2017, followed by the second in the fall, with the third to be unveiled in the summer of 2018.
According to published reports, the picture book, loosely based on Quvenzhane’s life, will center on a spunky young heroine who must navigate the complexities of being famous while trying to enjoy being a kid.
Sources close to the Simon & Schuster claim Quvenzhane’s 4-book deal is in the six-figure range and should they prove popular, could possibly lead to a movie franchise.
