Pharrell_CroppedMusic producer extraordinaire, Pharrell Williams (pictured) has quite a bit to be happy about these days particularly since he just secured a deal with renowned publisher Putnam Books for a series inspired by his hit song, “Happy,” according to USA Today.

The 41-year-old wacky hat wearing, Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter, actor and fashion guru will pen four books — the first one tentatively titled, “Happy” — set to hit the shelves on September 22.  The book will reportedly have pictures of children from around the globe who will be “celebrating what it means to be happy,” according to the news site.

The mega-infectious ditty that was originally released in 2013 as part of the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack became a chart-topper last year.  “Happy” also earned Pharrell an Oscar nomination in 2014 in the “Best Original Song” category.  The song’s winning streak kept going this year at the Grammy Awards when it won Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Music Video.

“Happy” will be Pharrell’s first venture into book writing and Putnam’s umbrella publisher, Penguin Books has reportedly already planned a 250,000 first run printing.

“I’m humbled by the global success of Happy, but especially in awe of the song’s young fans,” Pharrell said according to USA Today. “My collaboration with Penguin allows me to continue a dialogue with these children in a fresh, new way. We’re both committed to feeding the curiosity of young minds with imagination.”

Pharrell, we wish you well, congrats!
