Kylie Minogue Pens Her First Children's Book



Kylie Minogue launched her first children's book at the weekend.

Kylie Minogue has embarked on a new career as she launched her first children's book at the weekend, joining a long list of celebrities writing for the young. The 38-year-old pop sensation greeted about 250 fans at a bookstore in London, England, on Saturday, September 30th, signing books and talking to pre-teen girls who had gathered to see their idol.

The book, tentatively titled "The Showgirl Princess", was written during Minogue's recovery from breast cancer. It is about how the singer becomes a showgirl with the help of a dedicated group of friends. Several of the pictures inside, a photo-montage mixed with illustrations by artist Swan Park, were inspired by drawings sent to the singer by her young fans as she recovered in Paris.

"The Showgirl Princess", published by Penguin arm Puffin, went on sale on September 21st in Australia and Britain, and was officially launched by the singer at a book signing in London at the weekend.

"I met with the publishers whilst I was having treatment, so yes, it was therapeutic", Minogue said on her book. The songbird will next resume her Showgirl Tour, postponed in May 2005, in November later this year.
