The deal will also see the publishing house deliver a line of printed titles based on the studio’s upcoming feature title Early Man.

IglooBooks will be developing a new range of novelty, activity and story books for Shaun the Sheep, with the first two titles coming to market in Q2 2017.

The publishing imprint will also create a series of books to compliment the release of Early Man, a new prehistoric adventure set to hit cinemas from 2018.

Rob Goodchild, head of licensing at Aardman, said: “We are very impressed with Igloo’s crative approach to licensed publishing and the attention to detail that makes their products come alive on shelf.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with them on both Early Man and Shaun the Sheep and look forward to a successful partnership.”
