Finnish children’s books coming to China
Finnish publishing company Dramaforum has signed an agreement with Chinese publisher Shanghai Zhiyuang Culture Communication.
The signature means Petra’s Planet products will be launched in China. The agreement is for eight books, which includes four titles that have already been published and four new ones to be developed together with Shanghai Zhiyuang Culture Communication.
The books will be available in Chinese after their official launch in Beijing in January. The two companies aim at minimum sales of 800 000 copies annually.
“We are delighted to be in partnership with an established and trusted publisher in China and we are excited about introducing Petra to children across China,” says Eevamaria Halttunen, the founder of Dramaforum.
Petra’s Planet books draw on the Nordic approach to children’s learning by bringing together fun, quality content, cultural and environmental awareness and global citizenship. Each book takes children on a journey to a new culture.
Dramaforum is an independent Finnish transmedia company established in 2003. It has offices in Finland, the UK and Canada.
