Sharon Osbourne has teamed with Disney Publishing to release a new book based on her “Jake And The Never Land Pirates” character Mama Hook! The book is titled “Mama Hook Knows Best: A Pirate Parent’s Favorite Fables.”
The children’s book will arrive this fall and is about Mama Hook’s adventures sailing the Never Sea and about the stories she told Captain Hook when he was a young boy.
Here’s what Sharon had to say about working with Disney on the new book:
“I have such a wonderful time playing Mama Hook on ‘Jake and the Never Land Pirates. To be able to take that role to the book world and share Mama Hook’s stories with families around the world is an honor. I hope kids enjoy reading Mama Hook’s pirate tales and continue to fall in love with her, just as I have.”
