Is there anything that 14-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, the epitome of Black Girl Magic, can’t do?

The hard-working, title-collecting teen officially became a published author Tuesday when Simon & Schuster released two children’s book written by the talent herself, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The first book, A Night Out With Mama, is a picture book that is inspired by the star’s experience attending the 2013 Academy Awards, while the second book, Shai & Emmie Star in Break an Egg, tells the story of two best friends and their adventures at performing arts school.

But that’s not all; Quvenzhané is expected to continue building up her library as an author, with Break an Egg being the first in a series of chapter books. The second is slated to be released in January.


‚ÄúI really hope that people my age enjoy reading these books,‚ÄĚ said Quvenzhan√©, who first came into the public eye after her showstopping performance in the movie Beasts of the Southern Wild,¬†for which she got an Oscar nomination. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm excited about experiencing new things, and sometimes it gets to the point where I might get a little obsessed with it. But I really enjoy writing, and I can‚Äôt wait to do more.‚ÄĚ
