[extracted from a Press Release]

HarperCollins UK have won the LIMA Licensee Publisher of the Year Award for the second consecutive year.

Sally Gritten, Managing Director of HarperCollins Children's Books, says "To win the award once was good - to win it twice is fantastic. It really shows that we are the UK's Number 1 publisher of children's properties - that we have the vision, talent and resources to truly do justice to the incredible publishing licenses we hold.'

The Properties division's star performance has been helped by its stable of thoroughbred children's publishing properties including Noddy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tractor Tom, Narnia and Mary-Kate and Ashley, as well as film tie-in publishing to the movie blockbusters Cat in the Hat, Spiderman 2 and Thunderbirds.

One of 2004' s star performers has been Dr. Seuss - which has been celebrating the 'Seussentenial', 100 years since the birth of Theodore Geisel (aka Dr Seuss). As well as throwing the world's biggest birthday party in libraries up and down the country, Dr. Seuss' sales figures have increased year on year by 38%.
