Author Jeff Norton is publishing his first picture book as a digital exclusive through Me Books, an e-reading app from digital creative agency Made in Me.
Stomp School: Love You, Kaiju! is a nursery school adventure starring the children of the world’s most famous kaiju (Japanese monsters).
In the book, described as “Godzilla meets Muppet Babies”, the kaiju children learn how to construct and then destroy cities, but Rikki, a creative kaiju, doesn’t want to ruin his creations.
Eric Huang, development director at Made in Me, said: “We’ve been using Me Books to launch new brands—first as digital books, then physical books and other media entertainment formats. We have a large audience [that is] hungry for quality stories for kids. Stomp School feels like an instant classic.” The e-book will launch later this year, priced £2.99.
Norton is also working with Made in Me to develop the book into an animated TV show.
