Who says models don't read?

In addition to her 275 smiles, model-turned-mogul Tyra Banks is adding fiction author to her resume with the announcement of her new deal to write a three-book series for young people about (what else?) modeling, People magazine reports.

Banks describes the first book on her website: "The story happens in a make-believe place called Modelland - every girl in the world wants to go there because it's where 'Intoxibellas' are trained. Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce and, yeah, maybe they have some powers too. ... The story follows a teen girl and her friends who find themselves magically transported to Modelland, even though they're really not supposed to be there."

We're guessing that Modelland is where Intoxibellas take master classes in smizing. Also, lest you think the series is just another way make cash for her Bankable Productions, the supermodel writes on her website about how much she totally loves literature: "As you might know, I step into a bookstore and I shake (really!) because I love books so much."

What do you think? Will you let your kids read the Modelland series?
