Neil Patrick Harris is hitting the books!
As he readies to release a new middle grade fiction series called The Magic Misfits in spring 2017, the Best Time Ever host is releasing The Magic Misfits tells PEOPLE that "reading and books have become a mainstay in my family, and they have gotten me thinking in a new way about the power of storytelling."
Though Harris, 42, is already a best selling author (he released his memoir Choose Your Own Autobiography last October), this is his first go at writing for a younger audience.
"Playing with the elements of magic, adventure and friendship, The Magic Misfits is the kind of series that would have thrilled me as a kid," Harris said. "And I hope it does just that for today's young readers."
