"The Mamba Strikes Again"

Kobe Brant’s new children’s book, The Wizenard Series: Season One, is a New York Times bestseller after being on the market for just two weeks. Vanessa Bryant took to Instagram earlier this week to celebrate the milestone.

“Five championships. Five NYT bestsellers,” she wrote. “The Mamba strikes again. My husband @kobebryant would have been so proud to see his work continuing on with The #Wizenard Series: Season One. Thank you for supporting his legacy,” Vanessa wrote told fans of the book series.


Kobe Bryant created The Wizenard Series in the hope of sharing life lessons with kids while also encouraging literacy among the youth. His mission continues to be fruitful as many fans told Vanessa how much the book series has helped them in the comments section of her celebration post on Instagram.

“@chrisbosh has been enjoying the books,” Adrienne Bosh shared upon hearing about the latest installment in The Wizenard Series. “I will have to let him know the series is out,” Mrs. Bosh said.

Another fan went on to tell Vanessa specifically how her late husband’s books have helped. “The first book really taught me so much about myself and the power I have to overcome my fears and doubts,” the social media follower wrote online. “I’m super excited for this one,” the fan added.

Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday, January 26, 2020. He and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, were two of nine victims in the crash. You can purchase The Wizenard Series: Season One here.
