Actor-comedian George Lopez has a deal for four middle-grade books.

The Associated Press reports that the series is called "Chupacarter" and that the books will combine humor, mythology, and the author's childhood (along with assistance from co-author Ryan Calejo and illustrator Santy Gutierrez). 

Lopez said, in a statement, that his goal was to empower children, especially those who are "underrepresented and underserved," to believe in themselves.

And on that note ... the Guardian's Arwa Mahdawi has a favor to ask of celebrities: Stop writing children's books, because it takes a special skill that you don't have.

Her column mostly focuses on bedtime stories, as her own child is just ten months old, so Lopez is probably off the hook.
