Kaiken named as Master Publishing Licensee for ‘Horace & Co’ by Flossy and Jim
Kaiken Entertainment has licensed exclusive global publishing rights for Flossy and Jim’s ‘Horace & Co.’ in a deal brokered by Edutainment Licensing.
Horace & Co is a gang of friends that have been created to keep children safe and happy, whilst learning important life skills along the way.
The books follow the Early Years Foundation Stage educational guidelines to support each individual child’s developmental pathway.
The deal covers all publishing formats, physical and digital and the editorial development of the ‘Horace & Co. global publishing range will be led by Kaiken’s top team of international publishing professionals. They will bring experience from Rovio, the creator of Angry Birds™, Disney, Egmont, Bonnier, and many other international companies.
"Collaboration with the creators of Flossy and Jim is exactly at the core of our expertise. We can't wait to introduce Horace, a most disgusted hamster and his friends to our publishing partners," said Laura Nevanlinna, Co-Founder, EVP, Kaiken Entertainment.
The Horace & Co publishing programme will be launched at Bologna Children’s Book Fair in March and at London Book Fair in April 2018.
Lynette Dare, Creator of Flossy and Jim said: “We’re genuinely thrilled to have Kaiken act as our global master publishing partner for Horace & Co. We are excited to be working with such a brilliant team to bring this project which is very close to our hearts to life.”
