'Ranger Rob' Inks North American Pub Deal

Chouette Publishing will release the first “Ranger Rob”-inspired titles in spring 2018.

NORTH AMERICA–Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana has tapped Chouette Publishing to bring the preschool adventure series “Ranger Rob” to life through a variety of children’s books.

Under the terms of the agreement, Chouette Publishing will initially launch two new titles–A Campfire Story and Nature Quest–with plans to expand the line into storybooks, readers and novelty formats beyond 2018.

“As we continue to build on the success and momentum of ‘Ranger Rob,’ we’re excited to partner with Chouette Publishing on this new chapter for the series,” says Pam Westman, head, Nelvana Enterprises. “Chouette’s masterful ability to capture ‘Ranger Rob’s’ distinct sense of exploration and wonder through their books will offer young fans the delight of experiencing their favorite characters and Big Sky Park on every page.”

The “Ranger Rob” storybooks are anticipated for release in the U.S. and Canada in April 2018.

“We are incredibly thrilled to partner with Nelvana to bring ‘Ranger Rob’ into publishing,” says Simon Payette, general manager of Chouette Publishing. “We’ve had tremendous publishing success with our own property, ‘Caillou,’ and are excited to take that expertise and use it to make ‘Ranger Rob’ a huge publishing hit that kids everywhere will love.”
