“We’re excited to be working with Penguin Young Readers once again for Unanimous Publishing’s next project, Sports Superheroes Volume #1: Stephen Curry,” said Curry and Erick Peyton, co-founders of Unanimous Media. “We hope that when kids pick up the books in this series to read all about their favorite athletes, it not only instills excitement and grows their love for reading, but also inspires them to reach for the stars and accomplish their dreams.”

Curry's picture books, I Have a Superpower and I Am Extraordinary, "encourage young readers to believe in themselves and teach them about the power of being underrated, no matter what struggles they are up against," according to a statement by the publisher.
