Random House Children's Publishers UK has bolstered its portfolio with the signing of Komixx Entertainment's Toby's Travelling Circus.
The firm will be creating picture books, reader books, activity books and annuals. It has secured both print and digital publishing rights including ebooks for world, all languages.
It will work closely with Komixx and other licensees on the launch programme for 2014.
"I'm delighted to bring Toby's Travelling Circus into the Random House portfolio," said Philippa Dickinson, MD of RHCP. "The opportunities for taking Toby to a wider pre-school audience are very exciting for both companies and something we couldn't resist."
