Inspired by last month’s interview with children’s book author Maurice Sendak, Stephen Colbert is going to write his own tome targeted towards younger fans. “I am a Pole (And So Can You!)” will be released on May 8 by Grand Central Publishing; its title riffs on his best-selling first book, “I Am America (And So Can You!)”

When Colbert initially talked about writing a children’s book, it was in jest: he wanted to “cash in” on the ever-growing genre of celebrity children’s books. Grand Central said that after fans and viewers flooded Colbert with requests to purchase the book, he decided to actually write one.

“It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to write a children’s book,” said Colbert. “I hope the minutes you and your loved ones spend reading it are as fulfilling as the minutes I spent writing it.”
