Metta World Peace just released a children's book entitled Metta's Bedtime Stories.

Don't act like that doesn't make perfect sense. 

Ball Over All spotted the newest venture by the Los Angeles Lakers' resident class clown and provided a link to the Amazon page where you can get your own 34-page book. 

Here is a beaming World Peace holding his creation, via Instagram:

If you're wondering what kind of literature a man of World Peace's vision might conceive, here is a description from

Metta's Bedtime Stories is dedicated to ALL Children, Families, and Educators. Metta's Bedtime Stories was written to help children think about daily events in a positive light. These stories will show everyone that you can always have a better day tomorrow, if you have a hopeful heart and keep positive thoughts. Five stories are featured in this book: I’m afraid of the dark, Mud in my bed, One wish, Reach for the sky, and Tomorrow.

Anyone having a gloomy day might want to take a gander at this excerpt from a book that will be a hit with every young Lakers fan shortly:

Now that is a frown-turner if I ever saw one.

World Peace has made a habit of being a man of many hats: diving into the harsh world of stand-up comedy, releasing random rap songs, playing a detective in a Lifetime movie and serving as an impromptu weatherman

So if you're wondering why the basketball star would suddenly release a children's book, you haven't been following his career closely. 

The thought probably crossed his mind one day.

While most people would stop there and forget the fleeting thought moments later, MWP isn't equipped with that mechanism. 

Now we have a children's book penned by World Peace. The truly random is actually status quo for one of basketball's more captivating personalities.
