Funko to Launch Children’s Book Series
Funko has teamed up with Sterling Publishing to launch a new children’s book series in June.
The series of books will be based on Funko’s own designs and characters from Wetmore Forest. Wetmore Forest was created by Funko to encourage discovery and exploration among its fans. Funko’s Pop! Monsters include Bugsy Wingnut, Butterhorn, Snuggletooth, Tumblebee and others.
Funko and Sterling Publishing will showcase the books at the London Book Fair and Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
“We’re excited to expand the storylines of our beloved Wetmore family through a book series available at the bookseller with the largest number of retail outlets in the United States,” says Johanna Gepford, senior vice president, global sales, Funko. “Children will be delighted to follow the adventures of characters created by the same creative geniuses that produce highly sought-after Funko products.”
Funko’s book series will be available online and in-store exclusively at Barnes & Noble along with accompanying Funko merchandise beginning June 15.
