Madonna has got a bit of competition in the kiddie book department. Kylie Minogue has just released her first Puffin Books publication called "The Showgirl Princess". The lavish picture book which tells a child like tale of how Kylie transforms into the Showgirl for her concert performances, was written while she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
It is said that the pictures featured inside are part photographs (taken by Kylie's long time visual coordinator William Baker) and part animation. Her long time boyfriend Olivier's dog Sheeba also makes a featured appearance in the book. How cute. Sounds like a perfect stocking stuffer for the kids this holiday season (or any Kylie fan for that matter). "All that glitters and sparkles is what this book is about." Kylie has stated.
While on the subject, Kylie's 2007 calender is also available for purchase. I seem to get a Kylie calender every year (as well as a Marilyn calendar), so I look forward to the monthly pictures to come. If the cover photo is any indication, the rest of the calendar will be gorgeous.
The Showgirl Tour commences on November 11th.
