The program will expand to include hardcover and paperback picture books, storybooks, leveled readers, chapter books, junior novels and board books.
“Random House Children’s Books has had a long and fruitful relationship with Nickelodeon,” says Chip Gibson, president and publisher, Random House Children’s Books. “We are delighted to broaden our publishing partnership with them.”
Random House will continue publishing the coloring and activity books and Little Golden Book titles published since 2000 and 2009.
“The continued success of SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Team Umizoomi and Bubble Guppies has given us tremendous opportunity to develop engaging reading experiences and extend the storytelling and educational curriculum featured in our programming,” says Paula K. Allen, senior vice president, Nickelodeon Global Publishing. “We are also looking forward to the addition of a publishing program for exciting new properties like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Winx Club.”
