'Lost' star Evangeline Lilly: Children's book author?
Lost looker Evangeline Lilly dropped by Craig Ferguson’s couch last night for some after-hours chit chat. And after covering a few non-kid-friendly topics (Ferguson’s snake-shape mug, the potential removability of Lilly’s dress, etc.), she shifted gears to give a sneak peek of a children’s book she’s writing called Squickerwonkers (we’re guessing at the spelling there). Here’s a sample:
“The name is Squickerwonker, perhaps unknown to you. But that’s it, Squickerwonker. And here’s what Squickerwonkers do…”
Of course, Lilly didn’t spend six years on that island for nothing: She ends her little recitation with a Lost-worthy cliffhanger about the Squickerwonker’s “horrible secret.”
Are they actually smoke monsters? Or maybe they exist in an alternate universe? Lilly says she doesn’t have any firm publishing plans yet for the book, so I guess we’ll all just have to hang in there for a while. But you know what? The whole thing actually sounds kind of cute. We’d totally pre-order a copy for ourselves our appropriately aged cousins next Christmas.
