Author: George Foreman

George Foreman, heavy-weight boxing champion and griller king has written a children's book (of course.)
His book is Let George Do It! by George Foreman and Fran Manushkin and illustrated by Whitney Martin. It is about a dad named Big George who has five sons also named George.

Foreman always cracks me up. This bit from his Early Show interview made me laugh out loud:

The book is based on real life; all Foreman's sons are named George. Foreman says his wife tried to give the children nicknames, but then it became hard to remember them.

"My mother never could remember my name. I could go out of the door by the time she remembered my name. This will never happen to me," Foreman says and points out with a big smile, "If you're in boxing, too; you heard of Muhammad Ali, Kenny Norton, Joe Frazier. Evander Holyfield. They all hit me on the head. How many names am I going to remember?"

George Foreman is so funny, you need to read the whole thing.
