Dennis Rodman is writing a children’s book entitled ‘Dennis the Wild Bull’ (wait, what?)

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman, who has seen his fair share of problems since he retired, including battles with substance abuse and legal issues including domestic violence charges and non-compliance with paying his child support obligations. But it appears that the legendary NBA rebounding machine is taking steps to turn his life around and perhaps writing a children’s book is part of that process.

Entitled Dennis the Wild Bull, Rodman has teamed up with author/screenwriter Dustin Warburton and illustrator Dan Monroe on the book and Rodman’s first foray into writing for children apparently will have “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,” as so stated on the book’s website.

Warburton explains why he was so intrigued by this project:

“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.”

That all sounds well and good, but I sincerely hope that if any public appearances related to Dennis the Wild Bull are planned that Rodman doesn’t show up dressed like he did for that one book signing all those years ago:

You know, because of the kids and stuff.

    Wishing you well and God’s blessings Mr Rodman on your new children’s book project. You can do it, stay sober and drug free.

    What ever you do, don’t put your picture on the cover of the book. It would be frightening to look at. All your tatooes & ear rings, ring hanging on your lip – every thing is repulsive.

    Is it me or does the “Wild Bull” character and the background dust clouds have a “Okami” art kinda look to it? The symbol on the horses back side looks a little like something Okami would have on him.

    *Okami is a video game for the Nintendo WII.

    Dennis,
    I wish you well with your book! “If there is any good thing I can do, let me do it NOW – for i may not pass this way again!” I don’t know that you are STILL a role model to today’s generation, but any children’s book that can convey overcoming obstacles and working hard to achieve your dreams is a good book. Rock on!! Or rather Write on!

    It is about time that the true talents of Dennis Rodman come forth. I have know for many years (spiritually) that he had other things to do on this earth for others. In time he will (mark these words) shed the wild man look and may even go into ministry. What better witness for change than a man that has proven change in behavior is imminient. We all grow up, mature and if you are special like Dennis, nothing can hold back the true calling. I have collected many things from the odman glory days and I know one day they will be priceless. Watch out world Dennis has shocked and surprised in many ways and he is not done. He is gifted and talented, he is blessed. I wish him the best and I will get the book for my grandson. We can place it with “Thomas the train.”

    I agree with the Chaplain regarding your future. Faith in Jesus can change a person in the twinkling of an eye. Even though you might have made some bad choices in the past, this can be a new beginning. I wish you the very best.

    Just the person I want my kids to look up to. Wealthy, body piercing, flaming hair, tattooed side show, cross dressing entertainer with booze, drug, and women problems. Do you really think he likes kids? He even has a child support problem in his life. In my thinking, Jesus made this guy what he is. Do you think he would want him back? I suspect even he has his limits.

    Kind of funny him writing a children’s book when he just finished going to court about non pay of child support.

    Every child these days needs to learn how to be rude, how to drink heavily, all about tattoes and where to put them, and body piercing. Besides, does anyone think he would write a book for adults?

    Well, I know God has a plan for every human being and He has gifted Dennis to fulfil his purpose on earth. I sincerely hope Dennis gives his life to Jesus and watch the transformation that will take place allowing him to achieve his greatest successes yet and influence the lives of others to turn to our creator, God.
    Praying for you Dennis.
