Secret Kingdom - Foreign Rights Sold

| No Comments

Orchard Books have announced significant sales of foreign rights for their new chapter book series, Secret Kingdom!

Ahead of publication in the UK in July, the Rights team at orchard have already secured sales in seven languages:

Afrikaans (launching books 1-3 in November 2012 / books 4-6 in March 2013), Catalan & Spanish (launching the series in early 2013), Dutch (launching the series in Spring 2013), Polish (launching the series in August 2012), and Turkish (launching the series in 2013 (tbc)).

The rights in France were sold following "a fierce auction" and will be launched by a major trade publisher in Spring 2013.
There is also an auction getting under way for German rights and the first offer is in for the Danish rights!

The first book in the Secret Kingdom series introduces Ellie, Summer and Jasmine, who are the very best of friends. One day they find a magic box which whisks them away to a fantastical world! Can the friends help Trixi the pixie save King Merry's 1000th birthday party from Queen Malice's spiky thunderbolt...?
Orchard Books say, "Newly confident readers will be swept away by the magical stories of three children whose courage and resourcefulness save a fantastical land from disaster."
