Welbeck Publishing Group will partner with Mosquito Books of Barcelona in 2022 to create a global English language imprint, Orange Mosquito.
Under the publishing collaboration with the Spanish children's publisher, Welbeck will produce and sell around 20 books for children and young adults per year. The books will be distributed through Welbeck’s partners and channels in the English language speaking world. Orange Mosquito will officially launch in January 2022.
Lluis Cassany, c.e.o. of Mosquito Books, said: “Partnering with Marcus [Leaver] and a company like Welbeck gives us the reach and scale of a major publisher with all of the passion of a leading independent. We are thrilled that our books will reach customers throughout the English language speaking world.”
Leaver, executive director of Welbeck Publishing Group, said: “I could not be happier to be working with Lluis and Mia in this innovative partnership. Mosquito makes beautiful books and they complement Welbeck’s burgeoning and accomplished children’s programme.”
