Pippa Middleton hopes to emerge from her sister Kate Middleton's shadow with the release of her first book, Celebrate. Unfortunately it's not a tell-all tome about life with Prince William for a brother-in-law, it's a helpful guide on how to plan the perfect party. Pippa has worked in her parents' party planning business for years - and she even organised Kate's hen do before the royal wedding - so she's more than qualified to give advice on kids' parties, games and recipes.

It's the first time the world will get to know the real Pippa Middleton for what she does best, rather than just for her shapely behind. No wonder the pre-sales are going through the roof!

Of course, she's not the first celebrity to have turned her hand to writing, or to have used their name to boost sales of a book. Click through the gallery for more actors/singers turned authors...


Only a moron would need advice on how to organise a party from this waste of space.

Don't buy it, you'll only end up donating it to the local charity shop within a year, and those places are already full of Katie Price novels and hearsay cd's. Save your money and buy something useful.

Still if it wasn't for her sister and brother in law would anyone know who Pippa was i think not if it wasn't for her association with the royal couple no one would have heard of her never mind have seen her before.To many people use others to get work published, sorry but its the truth and you know   what, the truth hurts.

Still riding on her sister and brother in law no one knew of her existance if it wasnt for the wedding, it is awfull when you can only get recognition because you are associated with a person who on there on behalf are known to all.
