Scribble to begin publishing directly into North America
Scribe’s picture-book list Scribble will begin publishing titles directly into North America in September this year.
Scribble will launch its North American publishing list with titles All the Ways to be Smart (Davina Bell & Allison Colpoys), Under the Love Umbrella (Davina Bell & Allison Colpoys), Watch This (Jane Godwin, Beci Orpin & Hilary Walker) and Doodle Cat Wears a Cape (Kat Patrick & Lauren Farrell).
North American distribution will be through Consortium, and marketing and publicity support will come from Cursor.
Scribble publisher Miriam Rosenbloom, said: ‘The runaway success of All the Ways to be Smart in Australia and the love it has received from around the world has convinced us that the time is right to enter this new market. I receive so many messages from readers asking for a North American release date for this book, and we’re proud to be the publishers who’ll be doing that. It is a very exciting development for the Scribble list, and we’re delighted to be able to bring our brilliant authors and illustrators to a whole new audience.’
Bell and Colpoys’ debut picture book, The Underwater Fancy Dress Parade, was published last year in North America by Abrams, under the title Captain Starfish.
