Ladybird is launching a series of preschool titles with “Brave Bunnies.” 

Ladybird will launch the first two titles this month: “Brave Bunnies Spring to the Rescue” and “Brave Bunnies Make a Friend.”  

Ladybird Commissioning Editor Ned Hartley acquired U.K. publishing rights to the brand from Big Picture Licensing who are the master-agent for Brave Bunnies across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific (APAC) regions.  

‘It’s wonderful to have found a U.K. publishing home for Brave Bunnies with such a global leader as Ladybird & Penguin Random House,” says Dan Frugtniet, managing director, Big Picture Licensing. “Given the terrible current events in Ukraine, the creators are keen to use Brave Bunnies to spread the important messages of friendship, diversity and inclusion which are the core DNA of the show.’  

“This partnership is exciting for Ladybird because it is the result of several years of collaboration with the exceptionally skilled and creative team at Glowberry,”

says Francesca Dow, managing director, Penguin Random House Children’s. “We were first drawn to Brave Bunnies for its playful and warm ways of talking about friendship with a very young audience; and are excited that our books are now available for young readers to explore, bringing the internationally-successful Brave Bunnies to existing and new fans in the U.K."
