Shaq is publishing a series of children's books

Shaquille O’Neal can add a new title to his LinkedIn profile: “Children’s book author.”

The retired basketball player will author a new series of books called Little Shaq for early readers. It will be based on O’Neal’s childhood and feature a series of adventures of a young Shaq and his cousin Barry.

“I am excited to be working with Bloomsbury on this project that will reach young, independent readers,” O’Neal said in a statement. “Education is a cause that is very important to me and I love that this series will combine reading with my love of basketball. It’s a slam dunk for literacy!”

The first book is scheduled to be published in 2015.

While this is O’Neal’s first children’s book, he wrote “Shaq Uncut: My Story”, which was published in 2011. That book made headlines for its insights on his relationship with Kobe Bryant, Pat Riley and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. We’re guessing unless Barry is a fake name for Charles Barkley, this series will not do the same.
