Perez Hilton To Publish Children’s Book

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has inked a book deal with Celebra Children’s Books (in partnership with Penguin Young Readers Group) to publish a children’s book: The Boy with Pink Hair.

In his book, Hilton (pictured, via) “celebrates individuality and self-acceptance.” Celebra Children’s Books publisher Raymond Garcia acquired the book and Dutton Books for Young Readers associate publisher Steven Meltzer will edit. Publication is set for September with an initial print run of 75,000 copies.

Garcia had this comment: “The Boy with Pink Hair is a defining story about how believing in yourself and following your aspirations can not only bring out the best in you, but also in those around you.  With fun, colorful and endearing characters, Perez reminds readers that by simply accepting our differences we can find the things that unite us all.”
