'Lost' star Evangeline Lilly: Children's book author?


Lost looker Evangeline Lilly dropped by Craig Ferguson's couch last night for some after-hours chit chat. And after covering a few non-kid-friendly topics (Ferguson's snake-shape mug, the potential removability of Lilly's dress, etc.), she shifted gears to give a sneak peek of a children's book she's writing called Squickerwonkers (we're guessing at the spelling there). Here's a sample:

'The name is Squickerwonker, perhaps unknown to you. But that's it, Squickerwonker. And here's what Squickerwonkers do'

Of course, Lilly didn't spend six years on that island for nothing: She ends her little recitation with a Lost-worthy cliffhanger about the Squickerwonker's 'horrible secret.'

Are they actually smoke monsters? Or maybe they exist in an alternate universe? Lilly says she doesn't have any firm publishing plans yet for the book, so I guess we'll all just have to hang in there for a while. But you know what? The whole thing actually sounds kind of cute. We'd totally pre-order a copy for ourselves our appropriately aged cousins next Christmas.

What do you think PopWatchers? Check out the clip below and then let us know: should Lilly take a crack at children's book writing?
