Madonna, 45, has another No. 1 hit, this time on the book charts, the Associate Press reports.
The singer's children's story, "The English Roses," was published simultaneously around the world Sept. 15 and will top the New York Times' children's list for the Oct. 5 edition.
"It demonstrates once again that Madonna has an extraordinary gift for communicating with children of all ages," Nicholas Callaway, chief executive of Callaway Arts & Entertainment, the book's U.S. publisher, said in a statement Thursday.
According to Nielsen Book- Scan, which tracks sales in the United States, Madonna's book sold 57,369 copies in its first full week, ranking No. 5 overall.
"The English Roses" has been a hit in the United Kingdom as well, where it sold more than 10,000 copies in its first week alone, getting close to the recent Harry Potter book.
The book, about four girls jealous of a popular schoolmate who get a magical glimpse into her depressing life, is based loosely on the mystical Kabbalah, the singer's religion.
