Channing Tatum Turns Children-Book Author During Quarantine


Channing Tatum has established himself as a leading actor, producer and now director with his debut film, DOG, which he is co-directing with his production partner, Reid Carolin. Together they founded their production company, Free Association along with Peter Kiernan. Free Association has produced the 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike franchises.

They also produce the worldwide stage experience, Magic  Mike Live which premiered in Las Vegas and expanded to London, Berlin and Australia. However, his favorite role to date is being father to his daughter, Everly.



Channing Tatum has done it all, or so he thought. In fact, in an Instagram post, Channing has revealed what he was up to during Quarantine.

“Guys, I don’t know about you but things got a little weird for me in quarantine. I ended up accidentally locking myself in my 7 year old daughter’s room. And I ended up finding my inner child,” he wrote.



Ladies and Gentlemen – introducing the One and Only Sparkella – a fictional character brought to life by Channing Tatum in an awesome new children’s book.

Channing Tatum’s picture book debut is a charming ode to self-esteem and the love between a father and daughter.




Ella is excited for her first day at a new school. Glimmering pencil case? Check! Shimmering backpack? Check! Glittery ribbons in her hair? Check!

But her first day doesn’t go quite as planned: Her new classmates don’t like her disco-ball shoes, her PB&J-with-sprinkles sandwich, or her rainbow-y unicorn painting. Ella decides to try to be less sparkly at school the next day so the other kids won’t make fun of her. But with a little help from her dad, she soon learns the importance of just being herself, no matter what other people say.

“So this is what I created for my little girl. From what is, I guess, the little girl in me. Thanks for reading,” Channing concludes on his post!
