Clutch Magazine is reporting that Academy award-nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis, 12, has inked a four book deal with Simon & Schuster to release a picture book based on her fabulous life, and a three-book series inspired by Judy Moody.

The author writes:

“The series will follow a pint-sized third-grader by the name of Shai Williams who is a ‘star in the making” and “has a flair for the dramatic … both onstage and off.’

According to Vulture, the first book in the series will hit stores in January 2017, with the remaining two coming in fall 2017 and winter 2018. Wallis’ picture book will also be released in fall 2017 as well.”

Wallis was nominated for an Oscar for her role as Hushpuppy in Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012). She also starred in 12 Years a Slave and most recently a remake of Annie.
