Comedian, television show host and author, Trevor Noah has released a children’s version of his 2016 best selling book, Born a Crime.
Trevor Noah is a personality that everybody relates to, especially children. Publisher, Random House Children’s Books has adapted the book that kids will understand and relate to. The Daily Show host shares his childhood journey as a half black and half white kid under the apartheid regime in South Africa. The comedian talks about growing up in an era where it was a crime for different races to mix and even build a family together, and he was no different as his mother was black and his dad, European. Random House Publishers took the news to its website, saying, “This compelling memoir blends drama, comedy, and tragedy to depict the day-to-day trials that turned a boy into a young man. In a country where racism barred blacks from social, educational, and economic opportunity, Trevor surmounted staggering obstacles and created a promising future for himself, thanks to his mom’s unwavering love and indomitable will. It’s Trevor Noah: Born a Crime not only provides a fascinating and honest perspective on South Africa’s racial history, but it will also astound and inspire young readers looking to improve their own lives.”
Noah posted the news on Instagram saying, “Excited to announce that @randomhousekids have adapted my book for younger readers! IT’S TREVOR NOAH: BORN A CRIME, is out TODAY! You can order it online.”
