Tori Spelling has written a children's book.

The actress - who has previously penned autobiographies 'STORItelling' and 'Mommywood' - has revealed her latest literary venture, but admits it won't be in the shops any time soon.

She said: "I just wrote an illustrated children's book. It's going to be launching in about a year, but I just finished the text."

Tori - who is estranged from her mother Candy Spelling - has two children with husband Dean McDermott, Liam, two, and 13-month-old Stella is sharing her favourite childhood books with them until she is able to read them her own work.

She added: "Liam's favorite is 'Goodnight Moon' by Margaret Wise Brown. I introduced him to that because when I was little, my mom used to read that to me and I loved it!"

Tori's most recent venture was also for children.

The 36-year-old star has designed a range of kids' clothes, Little Maven, which she says is inspired by the garments worn by Liam and Stella.

It is due to hit shops later this year.
