[PRESS RELEASE – 26 APRIL 2021]
Sweet Cherry announces 10 new Geronimo Stilton books
Sweet Cherry Publishing is set to release ten new children’s books from their Italian licensed property, Geronimo Stilton, next month.
The news follows shortly after the independent children’s publisher was awarded Midland’s Small Press of the Year at The British Book Awards 2021, and was nominated in the Best Written Range category at the 2020 Licensing Awards.
The humorous fiction stories, licensed to Leicester-based Sweet Cherry Publishing for the UK market by Atlantyca Entertainment, is based on an Italian “scaredy-mouse” journalist who finds himself in the most unfortunate situations. The brand has sold over 175 million Geronimo Stilton books worldwide in 51 languages.
Cecilia Bennett, Sweet Cherry’s Managing Editor, said: “We’re grateful for the continued support from Atlantyca and are proud to showcase brand licensing in the Midlands. The demand for lighthearted humorous fiction is growing and we’re delighted to publish more books in this series.”
The fourth series of books see Geronimo Stilton visit a dojo in Japan, get spooked out by an Egyptian mummy at the local “mouseum” and take part in a bicycle race in America.
The books include real-life facts to support Geronimo’s global adventures, along with black-and-white illustrations and quirky fonts to engage reluctant readers.
The ten new titles will be published in paperback, along with a ten-book box set, on 27th May 2021.
