Atlantyca Entertainment signed a licensing agreement with De Agodstini Editori to publish Geostilton Partworks, a series featuring mouse-author Geronimo Stilton. The series launched Jan. 7 at news kiosks throughout Italy.
Geostilton Partworks features Geronimo Stilton and his family in a new series of 60 collectible issues created to help children learn the geography of the world.
Each issue will focus on a different country as Geronimo and his family travel around the world, landing in each country's capital or main town where they will discover and report on the highlights and secrets of each nation. In addition, each week's issue will include a piece of a collectible puzzle that will picture a globe when solved.
"We are honored to bring our beloved Geronimo Stilton to the doors of Italy's publishing giant, De Agostini, to play an important role in their noble effort to introduce geography to children throughout the world," says Maria Gurrieri, director of licensing at Atlantyca Entertainment. "These Partworks books are simply our invitation and guide for 'intelligent traveling.'"
