1006tobook_2

It's due out next month, the first in his Timeout Series.

Long story short: The sequels, "Little T Learns What Not to Say" and "Little T Learns To Say I'm Sorry," are expected in Spring 2007 and Fall 2007, respectively.

Here's Calvin Watkins story from this past Friday's Dallas Morning News.

    T.O. and kids? Book it

    Owens-inspired children's book to hit shelves next month

    You can attach many labels to the outspoken Terrell Owens.

    But children's author?

    The often controversial Cowboys playmaker, who made headlines last week for what was determined to be an accidental overdose, will now release his first children's book — "Little T Learns to Share."

    Dallas-based publisher BenBella Books said it should hit bookstores in mid-November.

    This is no tell-all, such as "T.O.," the book on his life he released this summer.

    It's about a a young boy learning the value of sharing.

    Little T, the title character, refuses to share his football at first but later realizes he can't enjoy his new ball without friends.

    "I tried to play outside alone and throw it by myself, but football isn't football unless you play with someone else," Little T tells his mother in the book.

    It's the first book of T.O.'s Timeout Series. The second book, "Little T Learns What Not to Say" is due in spring 2007, and the third one, "Little T Learns To Say I'm Sorry comes out fall 2007." The other topics haven't been determined.

    "It's a life lesson for discipline," said Courtney Parker, the co-author who's known Owens since they were freshmen at Tennessee-Chattanooga. "It's ironic because he's considered one of the more undisciplined players in the NFL."

    After Owens was released by the Eagles in 2005, he was talking with Parker on the phone about writing a book.

    "We're watching television and the commentator said, T.O.'s behavior is so childish," Parker said. "And then [Owens] says, 'That's not a bad idea for a book. It should be about discipline since the world thinks I have none."

    Owens was unavailable for comment.

Oh, yeah, one last thing: don't bother calling or dropping by between 4:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. (ET) today 'cause I'll have my game face on for Dallas v Philadelphia on Fox.

Oh, man.

They say it's the hottest ticket of the year except for the Super Bowl.

I have it on good authority that when T.O. finally left Philly, Coach AR went home and cried in relief.
