BOXING legend Frank Bruno is hoping to hit the top of the bestsellers list by writing a series of children’s books.
The former heavyweight World Champion — who has suffered bipolar disorder since retiring in 1996 — aims to help youngsters defeat mental health problems.
His Worried Frank series follows the story of a little boy who finds himself suffering from anxiety and depression.
Dad-of-four Frank, 59, said: “Reading is a great way of connecting directly to kids and this could help loads of children going through a rough time.
“People will notice that little Frank has some of my traits which will hopefully raise a smile with parents reading it to their children.
“I’m not sure I’m as good as David Walliams but I’m looking forward to giving it a good go!”
Frank plans to release the books, co-written with cartoonist Simon Hetherton, next year.
