Nah, it doesn't irk me. Celebrity books make money for publishers. It supports us midlisters. And hey, I also wrote a couple of pandemic books, lol

If they really wrote the books themselves, I'd consider them unqualified to write them. But I seriously doubt they even did that. They had an idea, and someone was paid to flesh it out, because the publisher knew the celebrity name would sell it. If you think it through, is there any reason in the world to want your child to read a book "written" by Madonna? Um, no.

Selling children's books has always been one of the very hardest roads for authors. Really, really hard even if you have ins with publishers. So these instant books make it even harder for legit authors. Thanks, Famous Person with No Talent.

Not that every children's book that gets published is wonderful; many are horrible. Assume these celebrity books are the worst of the worst and pass them by. Chances are, your children won't be missing a thing.

Does this irk any other writer of children's books?  It seems to me that whatever kind of celebrity they are they feel the need to write a children's book. We've had Sarah Ferguson - the Duchess of York, Paul McCartney, Prince Charles, Meghan Markle and a few others I can't remember. Instant publisher acceptance and wide publicity  :icon_rolleyes:
