NEW YORK (AP) -- Russell Brand's next Booky Wook is for kids.

The actor and comedian has a deal with Atria Books for a series called "Russell Brand's Trickster Tales," retellings of classic fairy tales.

The publisher announced Wednesday that the first of three planned books, "The Pied Piper of Hamelin," will be out Nov. 11. The next two books will arrive in 2015 and 2016. Brand will be collaborating with award-winning illustrator Chris Riddell.

Brand's previous books include the best-selling "My Booky Wook" and "Articles of Faith."
