Quvenzhané Wallis has signed a new deal with Simon & Schuster set to hit  book shelves January 2017. 

Quvenzhané Wallis is adding yet another stellar accomplishment to her resume! The 12-year-old just signed a four book deal with Simon & Schuster children's book division. 

According to the Huffington Post, the Academy Award nominee is set to write the yet-to-be-titled book series based loosely on her own life. 

Her picture book will be based on a lively young girl as she prepares and makes her grand entrance at an award show with her mother. The chapter books—for readers ages 6 and up—will follow up-and-coming star named Shai Williams, who has "a flair for the dramatic ... both onstage and off."

"Reading is very important," Wallis said in a release. "It allows people to form a visual experience in their minds of what is going on in the story. I hope all readers enjoy using their imaginations along with me and take a journey into my books."

The series is set to be published by Simon & Schuster between January 2017 and Summer 2018.
