Egmont has added to its licensed portfolio, signing a deal with Giochi Preziosi and The Licensing Company for the Gormiti property.
The firm has bagged the rights for an extensive range of books including colouring, activity, annuals, story and novelty publications.
The range will launch in spring 2010.
"Gormiti has that exciting combination of adventure and fantasy, good and evil that has caught the imagination of boys aged three to ten everywhere," said David Riley, director of Egmont Publishing. "We loved the exciting storylines, colourful characters and world of adventure that combine to create so many fantastic publishing opportunities."
