Simon Cowell is known for his trademark talent shows, and now he’s looking for a storyteller to help him and son Eric launch their “Wishfits” book series.
The father-son duo have seven books on the horizon, featuring their magical world filled with hybrid animals Snogs, Shigers, Frogephants, and Chimpan-poos. The positive and inclusive books are aimed at the 3-to-5-year-old set.
Now, Simon and Eric are working with Tongal to find a co-writer for the first book in the series. Aspiring children’s book authors of all ages are encouraged to compete for a chance to win. The writers will go through rounds, resulting in the top five pitching their story ideas and talents to Simon.
They are looking for “storytellers, dreamers, and wordsmiths, from any land, of any age, with any skill” to join the competition. Check out the Tongal website for all the details! The deadline to apply is November 23.
