Russell Brand Wants To Change The Way Kids See The World, With His Own Books

Russell Brand has been in the news lately for his revolutionary words and thoughts.

As Brand puts it himself, “Once we start changing the way children see the world… we can do all sorts of stuff.”

Entitled Russell Brand’s Trickster Tales, the series will feature illustrations by Chris Riddell. “Once upon a time, long ago, in a time that seemed to those present, exactly like now, except their teeth weren't so clean and more things were wooden, there was a town called Hamelin,” Brand said in a video announcement. “I know you've already heard of that. And you might think, 'Well, that isn't your story'. Yeah, I know, I've done a different version of it.”

Russell Brand’s The Pied Piper of Hamelin, illustrated by Chris Riddell, will be published in hardback by Canongate on November 6, priced £12.99. It’s his latest effort to influence public opinion on wider subjects like politics and equality, having hit the news recently with his advice for the people of Britain being not to vote.  

“It's the first of series called Russell Brand's Trickster Tales, where I do interpretations of fairy stories and folk tales, believing them to be the code to unlock aspects of our consciousness and to affect and impact the way we see the world,” he said. “Once we start changing the way children see the world… we can do all sorts of stuff.”
