Trevor Noah debuts ‘Born A Crime’ children’s version

South African TV personality Trevor Noah has released a kid’s version of his book ‘Born A Crime’.

‘Born A Crime’ was an instant hit following its release in 2016, making it onto the New York Times bestsellers list. Trevor announced the exciting news on Instagram earlier this week. He went on to say that the book is available for order online.

“Excited to announce that @randomhousekids have adapted my book for younger readers!” he wrote.

Noah’s autobiographical comedy book ‘Born a Crime’ garnered critical acclaim all over the world. The book details Trevor Noah growing up in post-apartheid South Africa. As the light-skinned son of a white father and a black mother, Noah was classified as a “colored” in the apartheid system of racial classification. Noah stated that even under apartheid he felt trouble fitting in because it was a crime “for [him] to be born as a mixed-race baby”, hence the title of his book.

A synopsis of the book explains that the book is a paean to Noah’s mother, Patricia Nombuyiselo, who grew up in a hut with 14 occupants. She was a fiercely religious woman who took her son to three churches every Sunday, a prayer meeting on Tuesday, Bible study on Wednesday and youth church on Thursday, even when the Africans were rioting in the streets and most people were cowering in their homes.

In 2018 Deadline reported that the memoir will be adapted into a film starring Lupita Nyong’o as Patricia, Noah’s mother. Nyong’o will also produce the film with Noah through his production company.

The 35-year-old ‘The Daily Show’ host was named one of “The 35 Most Powerful People in New York Media” by The Hollywood Reporter in 2017 and 2018. In 2018, Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
