Annick Press

Annick Press and Open Road Integrated Media, a digital publisher and multimedia content company, have teamed up to publish 34 beloved children’s books in ebook format. Annick’s new digital list will include picture books by Robert Munsch, including The Paper Bag Princess and Mortimer, Roslyn Schwartz’s The Mole Sisters series, and original picture books like Red Is Best by Kathy Stinson.

Annick Press seeks to create new means of reaching young readers through its collaboration with Open Road. “Perhaps the foremost challenge facing creators of books for youth is finding the paths to connect with today’s readers,” says Rick Wilks, co-founder and director of Annick Press. “We’re confident that a relationship with Open Road will forge such a connection, to the betterment of all who appreciate access to both their favorite titles and to making new discoveries.”

The ebooks will be available this summer.
