Jimmy Kimmel Releases First Children’s Book ‘The Serious Goose’

Jimmy Kimmel Releases First Children’s Book ‘The Serious Goose’.

On Dec.

3, Kimmel made his authorial debut with the self-written and self-illustrated children’s book.

Kimmel said his inspiration came from the playful “goose” nickname he has for his five-year-old daughter, Jane.

When she was little, when she was in a bad mood, I’d say, ‘Are you a serious goose or a silly goose?’ … So I call her ‘Goose,’ and I am just tickled by the idea that there would be a serious goose if there was a silly one, Jimmy Kimmel, to ‘People’.

According to Kimmel, ‘The Serious Goose’ was a chance to revisit his former dream career path of illustration, a process he called “difficult.”.

It is what I wanted to do: be an artist of some kind ... I just kept drawing over and over and over again until I had it.

The hard part was the lettering, really.

A goose can look any way you want the goose to look, but the letter “O” has to look like the letter “O.”, Jimmy Kimmel, to ‘Entertainment Weekly’.

In honor of his son, Billy, all the proceeds from the book will go to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and other children's hospitals around the country.

I wanted to do something to make a big donation to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles ... And not just them, but also other children’s hospitals.

This will be a hefty sum.

I mean, it already is.

And it seemed like the least I could do after they saved my son’s life two different times, Jimmy Kimmel, to 'People'
