Pugwash sets sail on digital seas


Children's character Captain Pugwash is hitting the high seas of digital for the first time, with Aurum Press and Frances Lincoln publishing the seafaring John Ryan titles for the first time in full-colour e-book format.

The first title, Captain Pugwash, will be released on 20th December, available across Kindle and Apple platforms at £6.99, the same price as the paperback format. The publication is part of a wider e-book publishing programme that will see the seven Pugwash titles available across all e-book formats by the second quarter of 2013. Aurum Publishing  will also be pushing ahead with a further digital programme, releasing fixed format and reflowable colour illustrated e-books across a range of titles selected from the Jacqui Small, Frances Lincoln and Frances Lincoln Children’s Books lists over the coming months.

Digital publisher Robin Harvie said: "As a father of an iPad-mad child, it’s a real treat that Captain Pugwash will now be available digitally and in full colour for the next generation to enjoy."
