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, which we have embedded above. In the 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.”
