Dinosaurs go multilingual for World Book Day

The World of Dinosaur Roar! celebrates by expanding into new territories

The World of Dinosaur Roar! is celebrating World Book Day in the best way possible – by appearing in new territories and new languages.

The new pre-school property is owned by kids’ media company Nurture Rights, created by Peter Curtis and produced in association with the Natural History Museum in London,

The first titles in the Macmillan Children’s Books published series of The World of Dinosaur Roar books are now available in France – where they are published by Larousse – and Norway, where they are published by Gyldendal. Editorial Bruño will publish versions in Catalan and Castillian for the Spanish market, while Salani will bring Dinosaur Roar and friends to the Italian market and Sinisukk is producing Estonian versions. The books are also published in Australia, New Zealand and Canada where they are published by Pan Macmillan.

The World of Dinosaur Roar! is a new concept that teaches pre-schoolers about dinosaurs. The extensive book series introduces readers to a different title character in each book and uses his or her personality to teach children about dinosaurs in an engaging and entertaining way. Every book in the series also includes simple dinosaur facts and a pronunciation guide.

The first four titles in the series of The World of Dinosaur Roar! books: Dinosaur Roar! The Tyrannosaurus rex, Dinosaur Boo! The Deinonychus, Dinosaur Stomp! The Triceratops and Dinosaur Munch! The Diplodocus, are already creating a buzz in the UK where they are receiving five-star reviews on Amazon – from parents and grandparents.

Many more colourful dinosaurs, including Dinosaur Snap! The Spinosaurus, Dinosaur Flap! The Oviraptor, and Dinosaur Whack! The Stegosaurus, are on their way.

With its large cast of memorable characters and engrossing storylines, The World of Dinosaur Roar! is already attracting licensee interest as a property with potential across a wide range of categories and merchandise aimed at a core market of children aged two to five, as well as gift givers and dinosaur fans everywhere. A Sticker Activity book is due soon, as well as a dominoes set, a jigsaw puzzle, beanies and plush toys.
