Isla Fisher, 46, excitedly revealed her “first picture book” in an Instagram post on Monday.
In her caption, Isla revealed the book’s plot, writing, “Mazy lives in Hollywoof and fluffs her fur twice a day.”
“While other dogs chase sticks in the park, Mazy pursues her acting dreams.”
She continued, ‘Then one morning Mazy’s agent brings bad news. Hollywoof has changed and there are no more jobs for Mazy.’
“Can Mazy embrace what makes her special and find her perfect role?”

The social media revelation comes after Isla gave a harsh response on whether children should be allowed access to Instagram.
The Australian actress – who is married to British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen – voiced her grievances during an interview with The Independent in February, branding the social media platform a disgrace to society.
“It’s toxic to children and [for] the spread of fake news. They don’t have to meet publishing standards, it appeals to our baser instincts,” the 46-year-old explained.
Fisher recently branded Instagram “toxic to children” and blamed the social media platform for the rise in bullying, anxiety and depression in an interview with The Independent
“Actually, I’m gentle – Instagram increases bullying and the fear of missing out, leading to anxiety and depression. So obviously I’m not a fan of Instagram,” she added.
The Wolf Like Me star said she avoids posting anything too personal on her Instagram page and mainly uses the account to promote her work.
In fact, neither Isla nor Sacha have ever uploaded pictures of their three children to social media: Olive, 12, Elula, eight, and Montgomery, four.

In an interview with Marie Claire Australia last year, Isla said she wants to “protect” her children from the public eye as much as possible.
“Motherhood is actually my favorite topic – but I keep it private. I think all parents try to protect their children, especially in the age of social media,” she said.
“I want our children to have a normal childhood – to be able to play outside without pressure or control. All children have the right to just be children and I would never sell a film or magazine by talking about it [mine].’

Isla and Sacha met at a party in Sydney in 2002 and married eight years later.
In 2020, Isla told Marie Claire that meeting Sacha was like “winning the lottery.”
She said their relationship was built on “a shared sense of humor and a willingness to get married.”

The Confessions of a Shopaholic star, who moved to America early in her career, also admitted that “juggling” a family in LA wasn’t easy.
“There’s not really a culture of taking the kids to dinner parties or restaurants after 6pm. I tend to entertain at home because I want to be with my family — it’s easier to put your kids to bed and have wine with friends,” she said.
Isla and Sacha moved to Sydney with their children in 2020 and have since relocated to Perth, Western Australia.
Stan Original Series Wolf Like Me is available to stream on Stan.
