New York - Nick Cannon has been keeping a notebook for much of his life, and next year we'll get to see some of the entries.

The 33-year-old entertainer and record producer is working on a book of poems for children.

Scholastic announced on Tuesday that Cannon's Neon Aliens Ate My Homework And Other Poems will be published in March 2015.

According to the publisher, Neon Aliens will feature black-and-white illustrations from several street artists and will reflect Cannon's desire to combine poetry and hip-hop.

Cannon said in a statement issued through Scholastic that he has been writing poems and stories since he was eight.

Cannon also has a children's book scheduled for October, Roc And Roe's Twelve Days Of Christmas, inspired by the twins he had with his wife, Mariah Carey. The couple is reportedly estranged. - Sapa-AP
