Discovery Enterprises International has extended its partnership with children’s publisher Miles Kelly, which will preview 38 new publishing SKUs for the three Discovery brands–Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Discovery Explore Your World–at London Book Fair this week.
“Our burgeoning publishing category is an invaluable platform to communicate the values of our brands that aim to entertain whilst educating young children about the natural world and the animals that live within it,” says Ian Woods, licensing director EMEA, Discovery Enterprises International. “We see Miles Kelly as the perfect partner through which to deliver high-quality books that not only look fantastic but appeal to children’s curiosities.”
Miles Kelly’s full range includes Discovery Channel’s second family reference encyclopedia, Discover the Awesome World, due to be published in August. An Animal Planet book series, My Wild Life, is also in the pipeline and set for launch in next month. Miles Kelly will publish a 30 book series under the Discovery Explore Your World brand that focus on the workings of machinery and nature.
