When you think of fairy princesses and dashing white knights, the last person you usually think of is Sharon Osbourne. However, I’ve got some news for you: she’s working on a Disney children’s book. Like, for kids. The folks at Disney Publishing Worldwide and Parragon Books have signed a deal with Mrs. O to write Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Mama Hook Knows Best.
Apparently there’s a TV series at the moment called Jake and the Never Land Pirates in which Sharon voices Jake’s mother, so this book will be in line with that series. Who knew? Here’s her statement on the project:
“I have such a wonderful time playing Mama Hook on Jake and the Never Land Pirates.
“To be able to take that role to the book world and share Mama Hook’s stories with families around the world is an honor. I hope kids enjoy reading Mama Hook’s pirate tales and continue to fall in love with her, just as I have.”
I suppose Sharon “Fuck off, The View” Osbourne isn’t your #1 candidate for kid-friendly material, but who knows, it’ll probably be good.
