Pharrell‘s infections hit song, “Happy” is becoming a children’s book.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated song will be transformed into a picture book by Penguin Young Readers, as part of a four book deal between the Pharrell and the publisher.
“I’m humbled by the global success of ‘Happy,’ but especially in awe of the song’s young fans,” Pharrell said in a statement. “My collaboration with Penguin allows me to continue a dialogue with these children in a fresh, new way. We’re both committed to feeding the curiosity of young minds with imagination.”
Fans can expect the first book in the the series, Happy, to hit stores September 22 — the literary effort will feature happy images of children worldwide.
