According to Nina Mandell of USA Today, Shaq will publish a series of children’s books:

The retired basketball player will author a new series of books called Little Shaq for early readers. It will be based on O’Neal’s childhood and feature a series of adventures of a young Shaq and his cousin Barry.

Shaq said the following about the new series of books set to be published in 2015 via Mandell:

“I am excited to be working with Bloomsbury on this project that will reach young, independent readers,” O’Neal said in a statement. “Education is a cause that is very important to me and I love that this series will combine reading with my love of basketball. It’s a slam dunk for literacy!”

O’Neal has kept busy following his retirement from the league a few years ago. Along with Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson, Shaq has become a welcome addition to the NBA on TNT team while pursuing other opportunities.

Along with being a member of the NBA on TNT crew, Shaq also has his own soda, Soda Shaq, and will have another video game coming out in the near future called “Shaq Fu 2” or “Shaq Fu A Legend Reborn.”
