Entitled “Wishfits,” the seven-book series will follow a number of hybrid animals created by the multi-hyphenate producer behind the “Got Talent” and “X Factor” franchises and his schoolboy son, Eric.
“To be able to write a series of books with my son Eric has been magical,” says Cowell. “Every evening, the two of us would think of the most unlikely animal we would like to have as a pet. We would come up with some very strange new animals… [And I was encouraged] to turn this into a book series.”
After creating such characters as the Dat (dog/cat), Peep (pig/sheep) and Chimpanoo (chimpanzee/poodle) together with his son, Cowell brought the idea to collaborative content platform Tongal.
