Not to be outdone by his friend and rival Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel is releasing a new children’s book and it looks hilarious.

In the vein of Mo Willem’s interactive style that asks readers to engage with the story, Kimmel’s new picture book The Serious Goose challenges young readers to encourage a very serious goose to get silly. Inspired by Kimmel’s nickname for his kids, the book requires the kind of comedic chops only kids can provide.

The picture book was written, illustrated and lettered all by Kimmel and his proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and other children’s hospitals around the country.

The Serious Goose is now available for pre-order on Amazon for $17.09 and will be released on Dec. 3.
