Awesome Media & Entertainment and Cloth Cat Animation are joining forces to co-develop book property, Stomp School, for TV.

In a deal brokered by Industry Media, the two firms will come together to create a new animated series starring character Rikki, a little kaiju who loves to build things.

“We're delighted to work with Jeff to develop Stomp School as an animated series,” said Jon Rennie, MD of Cloth Cat Animation.

"The book immediately caught our imaginations when Jeff Norton first pitched it to us and we know it will make for a fun, energetic series for both kids and their parents, who have themselves grown up with kaiju stories.”

Stomp School is a picture book from author and writer Jeff Norton (pictured left), which was first published in August 2017 by Caterpillar Books.

Jeff Norton, founder of Awesome Media & Entertainment, added: “I’m thrilled that Stomp School has found a nurturing home in Cloth Cat Animation, a creatively-driven company that will bring this eccentric cast of characters to life.”
