Pharrell Is Now Working on a Children's Book, Because Why Not?

There are no words. (Literally—it's a picture book.)

It might seem crazy, what we're about to say: Pharrell is becoming an author. (Do you see what we did there?) Based on his major hit by the same name, the performer will be releasing a picture book titled Happy that will feature images of children around the world "celebrating what it means to be happy." 

According to Digital Spy, Pharrell signed with Putnam Books, who will produce around 250,000 copies. Happy will be released on September 22. 

The catchy track, which was included on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, became a worldwide phenomenon, landing Williams two Grammys and an Oscar nomination—and a permanent spot on our Songs We Can Never Get Out of Our Heads list.
