Build-A-Bear Builds-A-Book-Deal with Macmillan Publishing’S Odd Dot
Build-A-Bear is entering the world of books in an imprint deal with Macmillan Publishing division Odd Dot.
The partnership plans to create a variety of books that will bring Build-A-Bear characters to kids in a new format. The planned releases include board books, picture books, chapter books, sticker books, and activity books. Properties that will be featured in the stories include the Build-A-Bear line Honey Girls, currently a live-action film on Netflix, and the upcoming Christmas film Glisten and the Merry Mission.
Nathalie Le Du, Publisher at Odd Dot, will be overseeing the imprint for Macmillan and Foundation Media Partners will be overseeing operations for Build-A-Bear.
