Kids entertainment specialist CAKE and Australian production outfits Cheeky Little Media and Mighty Nice have signed a UK publishing deal with Hodder Children’s Books for its new CGI children’s comedy series, Bottersnikes & Gumbles.
Hodder Children’s Books will publish a series of young fiction, sticker and activity books aimed at six to nine year olds based on the TV series, which is set to air on CBBC in July this year.
Lisle International is the appointed agent for general licensing & merchandise categories.
Bottersnikes & Gumbles was adapted from the four-book series of children's books by Australian writer S. A. Wakefield and illustrator Desmond Digby.
"We are delighted to be publishing the books to accompany this new CGI children’s TV series," said Katie Price, licensing director, Hachette Children’s Group.
"The Bottersnikes & Gumbles world is active, playful, involving and big-hearted with a wealth of funny characters and timeless storytelling at its heart.’
