Simon & Schuster Children's Books has acquired the world English language rights for the kids' digital trading card game, Fight My Monster.
The deal includes rights for three titles, the first of which is Fight My Monster Monstrous Official Guide - released on October 25th.
Fight My Monster has a community of almost 2 million players worldwide, with over 8 million unique monsters created to date.
Meg Wang at S&S said: "Fight My Monster is unique, because it's not trying to be another virtual world. It taps in to what boys at this age really love - stats, strategy and battling. The artwork is striking and the community is safe. Simon & Schuster UK is looking forward to expanding the Fight My Monster universe through these books."
Dominic Williams, CEO and Founder of Fight My Monster, added: "Simon and Shuster have done an outstanding job with this strategy guide and we think our community will be absolutely delighted with it. Our virtual brand is now reaching out into the physical world and we greatly look forwards to more successful collaborations with Simon & Schuster.”
