Omari's many accomplishments are ordinarily no mean feat, which makes them even more astounding considering his very young age. The cookbook, which is set for release come January 2021, is his newest addition.
Ever ready to share his love for vegan dishes with others, Omari's book features 30 plant-based recipes that are easy to make and are his own brainchild.
If there's anything Omari loves more than food itself, it is animals, and he shares the fundamental goal to help little children adopt the vegan lifestyle early like he did when he was just seven years old.
"I don't want animals to die or be eaten, so I teach people my age to be vegan."
At 8, Omari launched Dipalicious, his vegan brand, when his YouTube channel, where he filmed himself making a vegan pizza served with his Caribbean Kick dip, gained attention.
Since then, Omari has worked hard to spread awareness about the importance of vegan eating and how delicious it can be!
His book is one of them. It will be published by media brand Scholastic UK, which acquired world publishing rights from literary agent Oscar Janson-Smith at Kruger Crowne.

Leah James, Scholastic UK Publishing Manager, expresses for the upcoming book, saying:
"Children everywhere have been busy learning to cook during lockdown; we can't wait for Omari to share his recipes, tips, and enthusiasm with a generation of children and their families. Omari is leading a new generation of ethical minded foodies into a more sustainable future."
McQueen equally longs for the book and full of appreciation, and he took to social media to thank his family and loved ones for "believing" in him and helping him realize his dream.
