HarperCollins Children’s Books has ordered two sequels to Ian Whybrow’s Meerkat Madness, the adventure comedy book starring the Really Mad Mob. The deal for World rights includes TV, film and merchandising.
The first book, More Meerkat Madness, will hit stores in August, and the next adventure will publish in November.
“Ian brings the meerkat world to life with all its perils and delights and he has created a cast of adorable and hilarious characters,” says Harriet Wilson, editorial director at HarperCollins. “I’m sure readers will be as thrilled as us that the Really Mad Mob are about to ride again!”
