Rolling in the Deep singer Adele has been approached by Puffin to pen a children's book and the publishers believe she could become as big a success as Harry Potter creator J. K. Rowling.

The 25-year-old star, who has 10-month-old son Angelo with her boyfriend Simon Konecki, has been approached by Puffin to pen a story for kids which will be an easy-read for beginners, according to the Daily Star.

An insider told the newspaper: "Adele loves the idea. It won't reveal anything too personal as that's not her style. But the book will be something she can have as a memory of her early days as a mum and also something she can dedicate to her son. Everyone is very excited."

The source added: "The children's book market is flourishing with celebrities and Puffin have watched Adele's huge climb to super stardom.

"Everything Adele touches turns to gold and this would rocket the way J. K. Rowling and Harry Potter did."
