Get ready for a cautionary tale with a little selfie-reflection.
Jamie Lee Curtis will publish a new children’s picture book, Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group, announced Tuesday. Me, Myselfie & I: A Cautionary Tale will tackle selfie culture as it tells a tale of a mom who gets a smartphone for her birthday and proceeds to become obsessed with documenting every aspect of her and her family’s lives via selfies, only for her daughters to remind her of all the stuff that happens when the camera is off.
“My new book is my response to the ‘selfie’ craze that has taken over the world,” said Curtis in a statement. “I hope that Me, Myselfie & I will open a dialogue about the impact of smartphone technology on families, and provide a fun and whimsical take on our obsession with self-documentation, while also showing the value in looking beyond the screen and living in the moment.”
This marks Curtis’s 12th picture book collaboration with illustrator Laura Cornell.
Me, Myselfie & I will hit bookstores Fall 2018.
