Noodle, a 13-year-old pug, has made quite a name for himself on social media—and now he’s going to star in his own children’s book.

The TikTok star quickly rose to fame for the daily game he plays with owner Jonathan Graziano. Every morning, Graziano tries to lift Noodle and get him to stand up. On the days where he does, he has bones and it’s a “bones day.” On the days he resists and lies back down, he does not have bones and it’s a “no bones day.” While “bones days”’ are for getting out and taking chances, “no bones days” are for staying in, resting and practicing self care. The daily routine quickly went viral on TikTok as many used Noodle to predict how their day would go.

To help amplify the message and teach kids that it’s okay not to be okay sometimes, Graziano and Noodle are coming out with a kids’ book titled Noodle and the No Bones Day. The book will focus on how the duo approach “bones days,” when Noodle goes for walks, and “no bones days,” when Noodle spends the day in bed.

“It’s hard to put into words just how grateful I am for all the support and love I’ve seen over the past few months for Noodle,” Graziano said in a statement. “These videos have helped bring much-needed joy to so many (myself included), and I hope this book helps to remind anyone who reads it that it’s always okay to take the time to take care of yourself.”

Noodle and the No Bones Day will be out in June and is available to pre-order.
