Isla Fisher Explains Why She Started Writing Children's Books

Isla Fisher Explains Why She Started Writing Children's Books

Isla Fisher sits down for an interview on The Talk on Wednesday afternoon (May 23) in Los Angeles.

The actress opened up about her Marge in Charge children’s book series and the just released second book, ​“Marge in Charge and the Stolen Treasure.” It’s the newest book in this middle-grade series which follows Marge, a modern-day Amelia Bedelia, and her two charges as they go on crazy adventures and get themselves into zany hijinks.

“I was inspired to write it because I felt like for a certain transitional phase of reading, there wasn’t really much available for kids that was humorous,” Isla said. “And I feel like our kids today have exposure to all these modern gadgets and we don’t get them reading like we did in our day. We just read. So I’m pretty passionate about child literacy.”
