The Royal Horticultural Society has announced a new partnership with Scholastic that will see the creation of a range of children’s publications.
Scholastic’s deal will include RHS-inspired stickers, activity books, handbooks, illustrated non-fiction, board and coloring books, annuals, e-books and journals. The new range joins the RHS's upcoming line of children’s titles, which launch early next year. It will be available in bookshops and supermarkets as well as garden centers and online.
“The RHS is one of the best-loved and most respected of heritage brands, with an unmatched reputation in gardening,” says Elizabeth Scoggins, non-fiction and licensing publisher, Scholastic U.K. “We are delighted to be working with the U.K.’s favorite gardening charity as it brings its expertise and love for gardening to a range of publications that we are sure will be enthusiastically received by children and families alike.”
The RHS recently partnered with the World of Eric Carle for a partnership for “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” in honor of the book’s 50th anniversary.
