Adele has been asked to write a children's book.

The 25-year-old singer - who has 10-month-old son Angelo with her boyfriend Simon Konecki - has been approached by top publishing company Puffin to pen a story for kids which will be an easy-read for beginners, feature simple images and follow a storyline based on motherhood.

An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Adele loves the idea. It won't reveal anything too personal as that's not her style. But the book will be something she can have as a memory of her early days as a mum and also something she can dedicate to her son. Everyone is very excited."

Adele - who won the Best Original Song Oscar earlier this year for her James Bond theme 'Skyfall' - will follow the likes of Madonna, Ricky Gervais and David Walliams who have also had big hits with children's fiction.

Puffin believe Adele is capable of matching the success of J. K. Rowling, the creator of the 'Harry Potter' franchise.

The source added: "The children's book market is flourishing with celebrities and Puffin have watched Adele's huge climb to super stardom.

"Everything Adele touches turns to gold and this would rocket the way J. K. Rowling and 'Harry Potter' did."
