Penguin Young Readers Group and Cartoon Network Enterprises have partnered for a line of books based on Cartoon Network’s original television series “Adventure Time.”
The first four titles in the line will debut this July across the U.S. and will include “Adventure Time Mad Libs,” the “It’s a Slamacowtastic Story Mix-Up” activity book, the “Righteous Rules for Being Awesome” sticker book and the “Dude-It-Yourself Adventure Journal.”
“Full of its cast of rich characters and vibrant fun-loving worlds where epic quests unravel, ‘Adventure Time’ is a content-driven show that is ripe for a creative publishing program,” says Pete Yoder, vice president, consumer products North America, CNE. “This partnership with Penguin allows us to explore some of the publisher’s great formats, like Mad Libs and adventure journals, to deliver the fun and imagination that our fans love about the show.”
Since the start of the series’ fourth season, “Adventure Time” has spawned a line of consumer products including toys, apparel, accessories, an interactive game and much more.
“A Lumpy Space Princess, a rainbow unicorn that only speaks Korean and a belly full of dancing party bears? What more could a publisher ask for?” says Francesco Sedita, president and publisher, Grosset & Dunlap, an imprint of Penguin. “Working with Cartoon Network is a dream come true, and we are thrilled to introduce the zany brilliance of Adventure Time to bookshelves across the country.”
