LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Kids, teens and tweens can immerse themselves in all things Hilary when Hilary Duff World hits America Online on Monday.

The dedicated area will appear on America Online's children's service, KOL. Hilary Duff World will feature the pop star's favorite books, music and movies and include a monthly advice column where she responds to e-mailed questions. Duff also will contribute weekly blogs to RED, AOL's teen site.

``I'm going to do a lot of things that feel more personal with the kids,'' the 18-year-old actress-singer said. ``I'll keep them updated with what's going on in my life, touring, music, movies and filming. I might even do something with my dog. You can do anything you want now with the Internet.''

Duff said her Chihuahua, Lola, accompanies her everywhere.

The content on Hilary Duff World will differ from that on her Web site, she said.

Duff, who gained fame as television's Lizzie McGuire, recently returned to Los Angeles from a world tour to support her latest album, ``Most Wanted,'' released in August. She will appear in the film ``Cheaper by the Dozen 2'' later this year.
