Top That teams with YUDU for Froobles iBooks

Titles will be unveiled at next month's Bologna Children's Book Fair.

Digital publishing specialists YUDU will launch interactive The Froobles iBooks, Top That Publishing has announced.

These will encourage children to get reading and learn lessons about growing up via interactive games and activities.

Based on the popular pre-school fruit and vegetable Frooble characters, YUDU has created memorable digital story and activity books that let children tap, swipe, listen, read, draw, colour and sing-along. 

The first two The Froobles iBook titles, At The Seaside and Fairytale Adventure, will be unveiled by YUDU at next month's Bologna Children's Book Fair.

David Henderson, Managing Director of Top That Publishing, said: "We’re incredibly pleased to have another great new partner for The Froobles brand, we think children will really engage with the YUDU iBook range and it’s another positive step for our little characters learning big lessons about growing up."

The Froobles have already been licensed to outdoor play equipment specialists Playtec Leisure and have publishing partners in China, South Korea, North America, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Additional countries are set to join the worldwide publishing programme at the Bologna Book Fair.

A worldwide licensing programme is being managed by JELC.
