“So excited for this opportunity!!!!,” she wrote on Twitter.
Wallis received a Best Actress Oscar nomination at the age of 9 for her debut performance in 2012’s Beasts of the Southern Wild. She also starred as Annie in Sony’s remake of the children’s classic, alongside Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz. She also appeared in the Oscar-winning film 12 Years a Slave.
Last year, the teenager released two children’s books, published through Simon and Schuster. The first title, “Shai & Emmie Star in Break an Egg,” draws from her experience as an actress and centers on two best friends at a performing arts school, while “A Night Out with Mama” is a picture book based on her time at the Oscars.
Break an Egg is the first in a series of chapter books.
