Hot off the heels of her bestselling memoir My Teenage Dream Ended, Farrah Abraham is thrilled to debut her second work, a children's book called Passy Perfume, inspired by her adorable 3-year-old daughter, Sophia.
Passy Perfume tells the story of how baby Sophia finally gave up her now-infamous pacifier. After years of "crying, bribery, and exhaustion," Farrah promised Sophia her very own perfume — something that is "timeless" and has no "bad consequences like crooked teeth" — in exchange for her binky. In other words, a classic coming-of-age tale. Could we have another bestseller on our hands?
The book won't be available for download until Dec. 11, but we have some exclusive details about what you can expect thanks to illustrator Kacie VandenHull, who dished all about working with the reality starlet.
Surprisingly, Kacie didn't know much about Farrah or MTV's Teen Mom before getting started in October, but that didn't hinder the creative process at all. "I think it was better this way so then other people’s thought of her wouldn’t get in the way of how I felt about working with her," she revealed.
So what was working with Farrah Abraham really like? Kacie has nothing but positive things to say. "It was a fun and new experience to work with Farrah," she dished. "I have never illustrated an entire book before, so I really didn’t know what to expect. Farrah gave me great advice on how to improve the illustrations and get them to be what she was looking for. She knew the look and feel that she wanted the book to have. She just needed someone to make her idea come to life."
You may be surprised to know that Farrah created a rough sketch for every page to get the ball rolling. She also provided Kacie with a bunch of snapshots of Sophs so she could get all the features and facial expressions just right. And after two months of collaboration, Sophia's story was finally ready to be told.
"I know Farrah worked hard on creating the perfect excuse to get rid of Sophia's passy," Kacie added, "which created the perfect new gift of Passy Perfume" — a tradition the hard-working Teen Mom hopes to pass down to young moms just like her!
