An adorable picture of the famous dad and son! Simon told his followers all a book he wrote with Eric called Wishfits.

The America's Got Talent judge wrote: "WISHFIT is a world where the most unusual animals exist. The WISHFITS are magical, unusual and have evolved in a weird and wonderful way, combining two different species to form hybrid animals with very distinct characteristics!"

He added: "To be able to write a series of books with my son Eric has been magical. This idea was inspired 3 years ago by a very special friend of ours who runs a Children’s Hospice charity. I told her one evening about some of the funny animals my son Eric and I would invent, starting with the Cog and the Dat. And how every evening the two of us would think of the most unlikely animal we would like to have as a pet. She loved this idea so much she encouraged me to turn this into a book series."


Eric Cowell loves to read

Simon posted this photo of Eric reading a book in his PJs at home, telling fans: "Eric reading his new favourite book 'Come Find Me' and it's illustrated by my friend @terrycrews!"
