Pharrell Williams has yet another reason to celebrate—the singer, fashion designer, entrepreneur, and Voice judge is adding author to his résumé. The Grammy Award-winning performer has just inked a deal to create four picture books, starting with one inspired by his global hit song "Happy" that will be given the same title. Happy will feature photographs of children from around the world "celebrating what it means to be happy."

"I’m humbled by the global success of ‘Happy,’ but especially in awe of the song’s young fans," Williams said in a statement. "My collaboration with Penguin allows me to continue a dialogue with these children in a fresh, new way. We’re both committed to feeding the curiosity of young minds with imagination." Look for the book when it hits shelves Sept. 22.
