After going through his latest divorce and having to spend time away from his children as a result, Dennis has now done something many people never thought would ever happen. He’s written a children’s book which he’s dedicating to his children, with the intent to relay a positive message to our countries youth and to his own children. Rodman is moving forward in a postive way and has recently connected with his estranged father as well. Rodman’s Agent, Darren Prince had this to say “We’re not only excited about the project but we believe it’s a step in the right direction for Dennis.” Rodman has teamed up with Author/screenwriter Dustin Warburton and illustrator Dan Monroe with the sole purpose of conveying good lessons to children based on Dennis’s own experiences as a world class athlete while overcoming obstacles as a child. Warburton is an up and coming writer in Hollywood with his first feature film, Spiders 3D, hitting theaters in 2012. In addition to working in film Warburton has recently completed children’s books with former boxing Champions “Jesse James Leija,” and 2011 Hall of Famer “Kostya Tszyu.” “What excited me about this project is the fact that not only is Dennis a great guy, but he has accomplished things in his life many people never come close to achieving. The years of dedication and hard work that brought him to the top level is what I’m interested in conveying, and I believe it is going to spread a good message to our countries youth.

Children are our future and Dennis has a lot of great lessons to convey so needless to say it’s not only going to be fun, it’s going to spread a positive message which is what children’s books are all about.” While no details of the actual book are known, what we do know is they plan on making their official debut with the book in September 2012 at a venue undetermined and will embark on a worldwide tour making appearances across the United States, London, Germany, Australia, and Canada.
