Of course Dennis Rodman is writing a children's book entitled Dennis the Wild Bull. I'm just ashamed that there was but a modicum of shock at the announcement. 

The former Chicago Bulls superstar and one of the best rebounders to ever play in the NBA is launching a new venture as a children's book author, via NBC Sports

The official website of the book can be found here at Dennis the Wild Bull. The site explains further who jumped on board to help with the writing:

Rodman has teamed up with Author/screenwriter Dustin Warburton and illustrator Dan Monroe with the sole purpose of conveying good lessons to children based on Dennis’s own experiences as a world class athlete while overcoming obstacles as a child. Warburton is an up and coming writer in Hollywood with his first feature film, Spiders 3D, hitting theaters in 2012.

Warburton, according to IMDB, wrote the story for the 2011 film Spiders 3D, which starred Patrick Muldoon and Christa Campbell. 

Rodman is just a barrel of good news lately. After being taken to task with failure to pay child support, he went on a tour with other former NBA stars through the Philippines. That's where he made his father's day by agreeing to meet briefly with his estranged dad.

Now, he is working on spreading some positivity in the form of a children's book. 

I'm guessing the fact that the book will cost you $30 plus $3 shipping and handling doesn't help matters. At least the book, which we will assume features a bull named Dennis going wild, will also be signed by Rodman himself.
