Taye’s latest tale.
Taye Diggs isn’t just an actor and singer—he’s also a children’s book author! His latest project, The Festival of Creatures, is the result of a collaboration with Baskin-Robbins, so when he stopped by Daily Pop on Wednesday, Oct. 7 to talk all about it, he of course had to supply co-hosts Justin Sylvester and Carissa Culiner with some ice cream.
The E! duo dined on sweet treats from Baskin-Robbin’s Creature Creations lineup, which models flavors after three whimsical characters—the Unicorn, Mermaid and Monster—all of which Taye brought to life in his new book.
“I’m very excited about this! I teamed up with one of my partners and great friends Shannon Stoeke,” Taye said on Daily Pop, explaining that The Festival of Creatures is more than just a fun children’s book as it explores meaningful topics like “diversity, acceptance and anti-bullying.”
“And it just seemed to be on brand with what I stand for and what’s kind of needed today,” he added.
