Dennis Rodman Pens Children’s Book
No, this isn’t a sign of the apocalypse, but it’s close: Dennis Rodman, once perhaps the weirdest players in the NBA, has written a children’s book entitled “Dennis the Wild Bull.” The book will be released in September and, according to the book’s blog, it is being dedicated to Rodman’s children. Interested readers can pre-order signed copies of the book for $30 dollars, however for now the plot of the book remains unknown.
The book is co-authored by Dustin Warburton, a screenwriter and children’s author who has also co-authored books with 2011 Hall of Fame boxer Kostya Tszyu and Jesse James Leija. The book’s illustrations are by Dan Monroe.
According to the book’s website, the book has “the sole purpose of conveying good lessons to children based on Dennis’s own experiences as a world class athlete while overcoming obstacles as a child.”
Darren Prince, Rodman’s agent, told Page Views that details will most likely be released in the next week.
“It’s just really about the character, more about being comfortable in your own skin and that it’s okay to be different,” Prince said.
Prince said that the book is Rodman’s “own way of reaching out to his own children after everything that’s happened.”
Rodman recently went through a difficult divorce and had to spend time away from his kids. Additionally, Prince noted that book comes as a sort of healing process for Rodman, who has recently reconnected with his estranged father after 40 years.
“It’s a great step in the right direction for Dennis,” Prince told Page Views.
Prince expects that there will be a large book tour and noted that several conventions have already shown an interest.
The question remains, will Rodman don a wig and white dress for this book launch? He famously showed up to a New York bookstore wearing a wedding dress to promote his 1996 autobiography, “Bad As I Wanna Be.”
