Simon Cowell wants to write a children's book

Simon Cowell has said he is keen to write a children’s book.

Speaking to American TV channel Extra, Cowell has said he has been inspired to write the book following the birth of his first child, Eric, now two-years-old.

It will be about “animals”, Cowell said.

“I have thought about it, and now I think I’ll do it,” Cowell told Extra. “It will be about animals… I’ve had to read a lot of these children’s books and they’re quite boring, I think I could do it better.”

Cowell also added he was going to make a children’s TV show and a music programme for kids.

He is also creating a character based on himself, “obviously sort of a hero figure,” he added.

Cowell owns television and music production house Syco and is also a judge on the UK television shows "The X-Factor" and "Britain’s Got Talent".
