Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana has joined forces with Chouette Publishing to bring Nelvana’s original hit preschool adventure series Ranger Rob to the publishing world.

Launching in April 2018, Chouette Publishing’s territory will encompass Canada and the US with both English and French rights. 

“As we continue to build on the success and momentum of Ranger Rob, we’re excited to partner with Chouette Publishing on this new chapter for the series,” said Pam Westman, head of Nelvana Enterprises.

“Chouette’s masterful ability to capture Ranger Rob’s distinct sense of exploration and wonder through their books will offer young fans the delight of experiencing their favourite characters and Big Sky Park on every page.” 

The April 2018 launch includes the release of two titles, A Campfire Story and Nature Quest, with a target age of 3-8. In addition to these titles, Chouette Publishing will add more storybooks, readers, and novelty formats to their Ranger Rob repertoire as of fall 2018 and beyond. 

“We are incredibly thrilled to partner with Nelvana to bring Ranger Rob into publishing,” said Simon Payette, general manager of Chouette Publishing “We’ve had tremendous publishing success with our own property, Caillou, and are excited to take that expertise and use it to make Ranger Rob a huge publishing hit that kids everywhere will love.” 

Ranger Rob follows the adventures of 10-year-old Rob and his friends Stomper, a talking Yeti, Chipper, a robotic car, fun-loving pal Dakota and others, around Big Sky Park, the coolest natural outdoor adventure park. Whether they are flying or driving in Chipper, zip-lining through trees or snowboarding through frosty fields, they love discovering and exploring all the park has to offer. Each episode of the series takes viewers on a new adventure, cultivating the spirit of exploration and curiosity, and inspiring kids to get outside to play and discover.

Chouette joins a growing list of previously announced partners and licensees with Ranger Rob including Sprout, the preschool destination within NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment’s
