Penguin Random House (PRH) Children’s is creating a series of books based on popular emojis, including one based on the poo symbol.
The publisher is planning four story books – Sassy Girl, Pile of Poo, Laughing Crying and Heart Eyes – which are all set in ‘Emojitown’ and tell the story of what the emojis get up to when left to their own devices. They will be released in paperback (r.r.p. £4.99) on 4th October, along with an official emoji sticker book (r.r.p. £7.99).
PRH Children’s acquired the publishing rights from emoji company GmbH & Global Merchandising Services.
Richard Haines, acquisitions and new business manager at PRH Children’s, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the emoji company GmbH & Global Merchandising Services to create these fun and humorous books, which launch later this year. Now you will finally be able to find out the stories of pile of poo and sassy girl in these tales that are sure to make everyone smile.”
