She's done music, film and a sex book. Now Madonna is branching out into children's books, signing a publishing deal with Penguin to write five titles.
The pop star's first book, "The English Roses," will be published in September and tells of the adventures of a red fox and a little prince, Penguin said Monday.
The children's books are a stark contrast to the pop queen's previous publishing effort, "Sex," which featured nude poses of the star and became a bestseller in the early 1990s.
Penguin did not reveal how much it was paying Madonna to write the books, which will be marketed for children age 6 and older. Each book will feature illustrations by a well-known artist, said the publisher, part of media group Pearson.
