Jamie Lee Curtis takes on selfie craze in new picture book


Jamie Lee Curtis is coming up with a picture book for children in wake of the selfie culture prevalent today, titled “Me, Myselfie and I: A Cautionary Tale”. The 58-year-old actress’ book will be published by Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group, reported Entertainment Weekly.

“My new book is my response to the ‘selfie’ craze that has taken over the world. I hope that ‘Me, Myselfie and I’ will open a dialogue about the impact of smartphone technology on families… And provide a fun and whimsical take on our obsession with self-documentation, while also showing the value in looking beyond the screen and living in the moment,” Curtis said.

This will be Curtis’ 12th picture book collaboration with illustrator Laura Cornell. “Me, Myselfie and I” will hit bookstores next year.
